Publisher's Summary

The year is 1973. As a freak winter storm bears down on an exclusive, affluent suburb in Connecticut, cars skid out of control, men and women swap partners, and their children experiment with sex, drugs, and even suicide. Here two families, the Hoods and the Williamses, com face-to-face with the seething emotions behind the well-clipped lawns of their lives-in a novel widely hailed as a funny, acerbic, and moving hymn to a dazed and confused era of American life.

Simply brilliant

I bought this audiobook after recently watching the film on TV, hoping that the book would be better than its film adaptation, and I wasn't disappointed. This is one of the best books I've downloaded for a long time. The narration is excellent and the atmosphere created in this tale of dysfunctional families, a misguided sexual revolution as well as the nuanced character studies are brilliant. I can really recommend this to anyone looking for a more unusual read and a glimpse in to the heart of moral darkness.
