The lion in winter by James Goldman( Book )

45 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 2,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Insecure siblings fighting for their parents. Attention; bickering spouses who can't stand to be together or apart; adultery and sexual experimentation; even the struggle to balance work and family: These are themes as much at home in our time as they were in the twelfth century. In James Goldman's classic play The Lion in Winter, domestic turmoil rises to an art form. Keenly self-aware and motivated as much by spite as by any sense of duty, Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine maneuver against each other to position their favorite son in line for succession. By imagining the inner lives of Henry, Eleanor, and their sons, John, Geoffrey, and Richard, Goldman created the quintessential drama of family strife and competing ambitions, a work that gives visceral, modern-day relevance to the intrigues of Angevin England"--Publisher description

Classic small-town novel. Town is placid, prosperous, and beautiful surrounded by old family farms, lakes, woods, and of course, a country club. Then, into this picture-postcard world, come Talker and his girlie show. Talker is the kind of man most women look at twice. A jack of many trades, a loner, rootless, always on the move and with no permanent address, he revels in the gift of speech, whether he is using it to lure men to see the show or women into his bed
