Summary
  • As they shuttle between their Manhattan apartment, birding in the city's parks, and weekends out of town in their house near Cape May, a violent upheaval pushes Margret beyond the boundaries of her hobby and into the city's bright, but sometimes unwelcome spotlight."--Jacket
  • "Margaret Snow is the quintessential New York woman. She dresses the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue by day and mingles in the downtown art world by night, always searching for her niche in a city intent on capturing the Next Big Thing as it flies into view. Married to Charles, a professor at Columbia, Margret lives on the Upper West Side, and the backdrop to her life is made up of the poetic rhythms and colors of the Manhattan day: slow-running buses, the gray morning light striking the Hudson, the winter landscape of Riverside Park, the endless round of gallery openings, cocktail parties, and grand dinners in the palatial apartments on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Against this metropolitan whirl, Margret and Charles pursue a lifelong hobby of bird watching, a passion for which was kindled by her grandfather during long-past summers near the shore in Gloucester, Massachusetts
