This is SEX AND THE CITY—for seniors. One Fifth Avenue is the ultimate NYC address, so when its 7,000-square-foot penthouse becomes vacant—through the bizarre death of its nearly 100-year-old owner—the tenants, present, future, and past, clamor for the space. However, even a narrator as skilled as Donna Murphy can’t keep all the voices straight. But shifting from pathos to bitchiness to mirth, Murphy tries to capture them all. Best moment—the vulgar, drunken wake. Best character—Lola Fabricant, an Atlanta gold digger who strives to be Carrie Bradshaw of SEX AND THE CITY. This is worth a listen while doing meaningless chores but not something that will linger long in the mind. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
