Expert satirist Benjamin Cheever, author of Famous After Death, uses his dark sense of humor to deliver another searing look at suburbia. Literary editor Stuart Cross and his wife Andie, a film critic, hire the talented Louise to be nanny to their two young girls. Louise's perfection, however, begins to irritate the ambitious, but less accomplished Stuart and Andie, and soon the parents' jealousy gets the better of them.

Professional reviews

"What begins as a dreary account of overpaid egoists (in this case, Manhattan publishing cognoscenti) develops into an intriguing tale of personal loss and moral degradation. A wealthy couple buys the home "to die for" in a small New York town, commuting to their jobs in the city. This requires a nanny for their daughters, and the title character appears--a cultured fine artist, a sophisticated yet down-to-earth black woman who likes to be called Sugar. Her wholesome contributions to the value-addled household lead to dark events. George Wilson chooses to play the antihero, Stuart Cross, with a vocal style resembling that of a 1950s science film narrator, though his supporting character work is much better. Still, this is a twisted and gripping listen written by someone who understands the machinations of modern culture. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
