[Florence Gordon] is a treat.” — People“Hilarious and addictive.” — San Francisco ChronicleMeet Florence Gordon, a blunt, brilliant feminist. At seventy-five, Florence wants to be left alone to write her memoir and shape her legacy. But when her son and his family come to visit, they embroil Florence in their dramas, threatening her coveted solitude.
