The winner : a novel / Teddy Wayne.

Wayne, Teddy, (author.).


"Conor O'Toole has never in his life been in a place as casually glamorous as this New England community, a gated world its residents fondly call "The Neck." He's taken a summer job here as a tennis instructor, living in a guest cottage in exchange for lessons and a chance to study for the bar exam, far away from the stress of the tiny Yonkers apartment he usually shares with his diabetic mother. But, grateful as he is for the blissful beauty of the Neck, he must focus on earning as much money as he can to help his mom pay the bills, and it isn't proving as easy as he expected to sign up new clients for tennis lessons. That is, until a sharp-tongued divorcee named Catherine appears on the court, offering to pay him twice his usual hourly rate. Soon, it becomes clear that she's expecting additional, ah, services, for her money, and Conor tumbles into a sexy, erotic affair unlike anything he's experienced before. Despite his steamy, secret flings with a woman twice his age, however, Conor simultaneously finds himself falling romantically for the quirky, outspoken girl he met on the beach - who turns out to be Catherine's daughter. Desperate to manage the tangled web he's woven, Conor believes he's found a way to juggle everything... until he makes one fatal mistake. A satirical literary thriller that brilliantly skewers the elite, this unputdownable drama is huge, cinematic, hilarious, and an utter masterpiece"-- Provided by publisher.
