This delightful comedy is about marriage, adultery, career choices, opposing a domineering father and finding one's own identity. Buddy Apple, an aspiring writer, ventures off into an adulterous affair because of frustrations with his lack of career success and his unhappiness with his wife. Eventually, he learns that the perfect life he has been seeking is right there at home.
"Mayer's dialogue is a delight. His characters are three dimensional and irresistible; his situations are entirely credible and his depiction of warm, lively Jewish family life richly spiced and blessed with non stop humor and underlying goodwill." -
