"A gifted storyteller...her characters are intelligent, brave, and witty...human and real."
--Susan Isaacs, New York Times Book Review

The critically acclaimed author of Good-bye and Amen, Leeway Cottage, and More Than You Know, Beth Gutcheon returns with Gossip, a sharply perceptive and emotionally resonant novel about the power of knowing things about others, the consequences of rumor, and the unexpected price of friendship. A story set among the rich, famous, and well-dressed of Manhattan's Upper East Side, Gossip is a bravura display of this exceptional author's breathtaking talents, addressing important themes of motherhood, friendship, and fidelity. Every reader who admires the strong, character-driven women's fiction of Sue Miller, Alice Hoffman, Elizabeth Berg, and Kaye Gibbons should lend an ear to Beth Gutcheon's Gossip.

I had a hard time getting into this book, but once I forced myself to I really enjoyed it. Then the shock towards the end...I had to go back and read the first few pages again. Worth the read since it is on the short side.
