Description

Life in her elite, Democratic Westchester hometown had never made much sense to Patty. But she found much to admire at the University of Minnesota, not the least of which was Walter Berglund - a stable, serious, politically conscious law student who slept only four hours each night so that he could make ends meet and take care of his parents. They got married three weeks after her college graduation and their children, Jessica and Joey, followed soon after. Two decades later, we must ask: What happened to the Berglunds? Why has Walter taken a job that finds him rationalizing the kind of unethical behavior that the younger Walter would have condemned? What exactly is Richard Katz—brilliant musician and Walter's best friend—still doing in the picture? And what has befallen poor Patty?
