Fiction • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Melanie Korn, married to funeral home billionaire Arthur Korn, is trying desperately to fit into the upper echelon of New York City's elite social circles. But Melaine was born to poor parents and feels she must compete with the memory of Arthur's first wife and the richest of the idle rich. Through Melanie's character the authors reveal the petty and the vain, complete with scandal and deceit. Barbara Rosenblat uses her prodigious talents to portray the foibles and snobbery of wealthy Manhattanites. When Melanie discovers life outside of the Upper East side, Rosenblat adds backbone to her character and shows just how hard it is to be yourself when you want to live at the "right address." M.B.K.
