Heather and Mack McKay seem to have it all: wealth, a dream house in the suburbs, and two adorable children along with the nannies to raise them. But their marriage has lost its savor: she is a frustrated writer and he longs for a cultural trophy to hang on his belt.
   During a chance encounter in LA, Mack invites exiled writer Zoltan Barbu--once lionized as a political hero, now becoming a has-been--to live with him and his wife in their luxurious home. The plan should provide Heather with literary companionship, Mack with cultural cachet, and Zoltan himself with a pastoral environment in which to overcome his writer's block and produce a masterpiece.
    Of course, as happens with triangles, complications arise--some hilarious, some sad--as the three players pursue a game that leads to shifting alliances and sexual misadventures. Shulman pokes fun at our modern malaise (why is having it all never enough?), even as she traces the ever-changing dynamics within a marriage. Ménage is a bravura performance from one of America's most renowned feminist writers.

This was exciting to read. It was so close to dark but didn't get dark enough for me to put it down. I would like to read this one again to find the stuff I missed the firt time around because I am sure that there is more to discover and enjoy.
