A Bold and Funny Novel About Trust and Love

One frigid, January morning in Manhattan, a new father, racked by sleep deprivation, decides to let his wife sleep in -- then spontaneously flees lower Manhattan with the baby for a weekend in the Caribbean. It wasn't a kidnapping, he wasn't leaving his wife; he just wanted to spend a little time with the baby and give his wife a break. When the wife awakes, truly rested for the first time in nearly a year, she feels great -- and embarks on a city adventure as misguided in its own way as her husband's impulsive escape.

Told from the couple's alternating points of view, the story unfolds across one life-changing long weekend. The wife tries to recapture who she was before the baby. The husband struggles to care for his daughter -- far from the special homemade formula and high-end diapers she requires. Parenting had seemed like such a doable idea -- until they tried to do it. Lucky, highly educated Americans, this couple barely survives making the first real sacrifice of their lives. But survive they do, in a hilarious, touching, tour de force debut about passion, ambivalence, and love.
