Sophia is a thirty-four-year-old editor living in Soho. Her only living relation (she thinks), her grandmother Felicity, an eighty-three-year-old widow (several times) living in smart Connecticut. Sophia is torn between her delight in her freedom in and a nagging desire for the family ties which everyone else grumbles about. All she has is Felicity. But Felicity is not your average granny. Temperamental, sophisticated, chic (and alarmingly eccentric), she has seen much of life, love and sex and is totally prepared to see more. Even if it is from a twilight home (The Golden Bowl Complex for Creative Retirement)... Twilight is not at all Felicity's idea of fun; and quite possibly she has more idea of fun than her granddaughter.
