Some brief overview of book

*A New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice* From the award-winning author Lynn Freed, whos been called a "literary star" by The New York Times Book Review, comes a hilarious and brilliant new novel about the riotous, passion-filled adventures of three women who thought they were past their prime. To escape their griping grown children, husbands and lovers, and an abundance of grandchildren underfoot, three self-proclaimed "old bags," Dania, Ruth, and Bess, head for a quiet island on the Aegean Sea. Theyll spend a year by the waterwatching the sunset, eating grilled fish and fresh olives, sipping ouzo.

They deserve it, they say. After all those years, the three women will finally have some peace. Except that they cant.

For one, Bess, a pampered, once-beautiful inheritress, falls swiftly into an affair with a poetry-writing taxi driverwho has, of course, a territorial wife. And Dania, a therapist, begins to receive an increasing number of cryptically menacing phone calls from a psychotic patient. An ex-lover of Ruths shows up unexpectedly, right before one of Besss doesand then the womens children arrive, with their own demanding children in tow.

As the island quickly becomes crowded, the womens serene year in Greece devolves perilously, and uproariously, into something much more complicated. With the wit of Maria Semples Today Will Be Different and all the adventure of Deborah Moggachs The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Lynn Freeds The Last Laugh is at once wildly funny and deeply perceptive, an exuberant story of friendship and pleasure, family and love.
