9780385116589: Chilly Scenes of Winter

The hero of Ann Beattie's CHILLY SCENES OF WINTER is Charles, 27 years old, working a nine-to-five job that he can't afford to leave. His life is stale and flat. He endures a grotesquely crazy mother and an idiot stepfather. His only release is pizza and beer with his old buddy Sam. Charles exists in a dream world, fantasizing his reunion with Laura, the woman he loves and had an affair with 10 years before.

8 1-hour cassettes

From the Back Cover:

It is the story of love-smitten Charles; his friend Sam, the unemployed Phi Beta Kappa college graduate; and Charles's mother, who spends much of her time in the bathtub feeling depressed. It is an uncannily accurate look at the nostalgia suffered by people yearning for deeper feelings in a culture that turns feelings into cliches.
