Product description


"A mesmerizing, head-spinning--and sometimes madcap-hilarious--take of have and have-nots."--People (Book of the Week)

"In the smart, breezy, sweet spot between Meg Wolitzer and Elin Hilderbrand."--Entertainment Weekly

"Blundell knows the territory. . . . Her account of Ruthie's coming to grips with a career, a daughter and a community in flux is as touching as it is convincing."--The Wall Street Journal

"A huge page-turner . . . so compelling . . . a classic beach read, but very smart, very intelligently written."--Us Weekly, Emily Giffin's Summer Reading Recommendations

"An acid-laced domestic drama set during one golden summer on the moneyed, beachy North Fork of Long Island."--The New York Times

"Judy Blundell wields words like an oyster knife in this shimmering story of art, money, and celebrity."--Helen Simonson, New York Times bestselling author of The Summer Before the War

"A wry, often hilarious story of a woman trying to keep it together when everything is going so, so wrong."--Real Simple

"[A] perfect book for your beach bag--even if you're not Long Island-bound."--Vogue

"If you loved The Affair, you'll love this book."--Glamour

"The High Season is packed with quirky characters and charm that will last all summer long."--Hello Giggles

"The High Season goes beyond light summer fare. It's a bit like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous but with Jane Austen's type of biting wit and keen eye toward the human heart as an undercurrent."--Pulse Magazine

"The Platonic ideal of a beach read."--Greenwich Sentinel

"The sophisticated and delicious portrayal of subtle class warfare at the shore would make a perfect beach book, but it's a pleasure to read any time."--Library Journal (starred review)

"The High Season is touching, funny, and emotionally precise, recognizable yet full of surprises. Forget the Hamptons: Blundell's North Fork is where the real drama--and fun--blow in."--Cathleen Schine, New York Times bestselling author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport

"You will revel in the human drama and comedy of this skillfully told tale. Wise, funny, and insightful, Judy Blundell tells the story of one woman that says something about all of us, our aspirations, and the delicate state of the American dream."--Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of Kiss Carlo --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
