Book Review: ‘The Widow’s Guide To Sex And Dating’ By Carole Radziwill

In 1985, Yale Tishman, the development director for an art gallery in Chicago, is about to pull off an amazing coup, bringing in an extraordinary collection of 1920s paintings as a gift to the gallery. Yet as his career begins to flourish, the carnage of the AIDS epidemic grows around him. One by one, his friends are dying and after his friend Nico’s funeral, the virus circles closer and closer to Yale himself. Soon the only person he has left is Fiona, Nico’s little sister.

He counted among his friends a colorful variety of artists and intellectuals, from the controversial French lettriste Isadore Isou to the American comedian Paul Reubens. Mr. Byrne went on to publish many books in the 1980s and ’90s, including Sperm and Whiskey; Sex, Sea Songs and Sartre; and Driving with Her Head in Your Lap. He did not publish a book, however, after his collection of essays, The State of Erection, in 1999, choosing instead to focus on the lecture circuit and talk shows.

Then Charlie is improbably killed by a falling piece of art while walking home from a tryst with his publicist, and Claire finds herself with the burden (opportunity?) of redefining her life as a widow. She fumbles through dates set up by well-intentioned girlfriends, drinks a lot of wine, sleeps too much and consults a ridiculous series of questionable therapists. None of her friends seemed like particularly good friends, and were mostly pretty self-centered themselves. I was so excited for this book, and it just fell flat.
