Can women today have it all? Could they ever? In a Manhattan brownstone in the early 80’s, three women nearing the peak of their careers realize the price as well as the payoffs of success in a dramatic, sexy, compelling novel as contemporary as today’s headlines:
Paula, lawyer and politician: “First they said marry a successful man, then they said be one. Which is right? What should our real role be?” When her radical lover from law school days comes up from the underground, she must consider the one she chose and rethink the principles on which she staked her career.
Cass, beautiful, ambitious advertising executive: “Who says a woman today can’t go as far as a man? Who says we can ’t have everything they do?” Words she lives by until her affair with her charismatic boss explodes on the front page and threatens to torpedo her career.
Ellin, writer and single mother: “Where is it written that just because you‘re a parent you have to give up everything else that completes you?” Torn between her own needs and those of her teenage daughter, she learns that the cost of love and the price of fame is greater than she ever imagined.
Tradeoffs is a novel of love, careers, conflict and friendship among women on top, a compelling story about the real choices faced by every woman who ever hoped to have it all.
