The paradoxes set up between love and sex in contemporary American life are explored with subtle insight and brilliantly incisive humor in this culturally prescient novel. Domestic Arrangements is about a recognizable family facing a recognizable dilemma-how to respond to their daughter's first affair. The Englebergs are not altogether ordinary though: Mom is Amanda, an in-demand actress whose specialties are TV commercials and soap operas; Daddy is Lionel, the director of an Emmy-winning TV documentary; Tatiana, our fourteen-year-old narrator, is a budding actress who just filmed her first `tasteful' nude scene; and finally Cordelia, Tatiana's acerbic and sharp-witted sister who is facing her own crisis of self-image. Norma Klein's novel speaks to a multitude of readers who will empathize with the foibles of our time in every scene of this perceptive and honest literary entertainment.
