A present-day comedy of manners that serves as an insightful look at the lives of those in the upper classes After sisters Laure and Marie learn of their parents' plan to sell the family's summer retreat, L'Agapanthe, they devise a scheme for attracting a wealthy suitor who can afford to purchase the estate. Selling it would mean more than just losing a place to go during the summer: for the sisters, it's become a necessary part of their character, their lifestyle, and their past. L'Agapanthe, a place of charm and nostalgia, is the perfect venue to exercise proper etiquette and intellect, though not all its visitors are socially savvy-especially when it's a matter of understanding the relationship between old money and the nouveau riche. The comedy of manners begins, with stock traders, yogis, fashion designers, models, swindlers, the Mafia, and a number of celebrity guests. Laure-the witty, disarming, and poignant narrator-guides the listener through elegant dinners, midnight swims in the bay, and conversations about current events, literature, art, and cinema. The Suitors is an amusing insider's look at the codes, manners, and morals of French high society.
