A Charmed Life
A NoveleBook - 2013
The life of a writer is flipped upside down when she reconnects with her roots—and her remarried ex-husband—in this witty autobiographical novel by bestselling author Mary McCarthy Former actress and budding playwright Martha Sinnott longs to return to the New Leeds artists’ colony and the “charmed life” she abandoned when she divorced her first husband. Now remarried, she has come back to the New England artistic “utopia” with her current spouse to find that little has changed. The same people still make up this tightly knit society, and her former husband has taken up new residence, with his new wife, dangerously close by. But her eagerly anticipated homecoming includes many rude awakenings in the company of the unhappy and often resentful artistic also-rans and never-weres she once counted among her closest friends. And in this pervasive atmosphere of falsehoods and self-delusions, the biggest lie of all is Martha’s belief that she can reconnect with Miles, her ex, without it wreaking terrible havoc on her life and her future. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Mary McCarthy including rare images from the author’s estate.
