Married antigue dealers living in New York City want to expand their living space into the apartment they own next door once Andra, the cranky, elderly widow who lives there, finally dies, but Andra seems to be in no hurry to go anywhere."Kate has a lot on her mind. ThereÆs the ethics problem of buying furniture on the cheap at estate sales and marking it up at her trendy Manhattan store. ThereÆs the materialism problem of not wanting her teenage daughter to want the expensive things that Kate wants. ThereÆs the marriage problem of sharing a partnership in parenting, business, and life with her husband Alex but sensing doubt nibbling at the foundations. And thereÆs KateÆs free-floating 21st century malaiseùthe problem of how to live well and be a good person when poverty, homelessness, and sadness are always right outside the door. Plus, thereÆs the neighbors: cranky, elderly Andra and the two granddaughters who look after her. As Kate, Alex, and Abby interact with the people next door, with each other, and with their New York surroundings, a complex mix of animosity, friendship, deception, guilt, and love plays out with both sharp humor and pathos."
