As a Mossad agent,
an international aid worker,
a Venetian countess dispossessed—
for 7 years her first-class flights and hotel suites have been paid for by the hapless men upon whom she subsists.


But Exquisite Hours is a novel about
a beautiful young woman
who is tired of wandering.

Confessions of love are becoming chronic. Anaïs is too often having to resort to her last line of defence—
the rufie.


In a matter of days she flees from Hong Kong to New York to Missouri to Bangladesh to Bangkok,
and at last to Venice,
where she falls in love with her
false-speaking match.


But will a deceitful past
allow Anaïs a happy future?

Set in New York, Bangkok, Venice, and London, Exquisite Hours is the novel that I recommend most people start with if they're new to my work.



The book that launched my career,
(and hailed by most who read it as
the funniest novel they've ever read
)
Exquisite Hours is now in
pre-production as a movie.
