Abstract:

Barbara and Oliver Rose started out as young lovebirds, ready to scrimp and save and struggle their way toward a rosy future. But by the time that future arrived, bringing with it two kids, two pets, two cars and a big house with a lighted, glassed-in shoe closet, they hated each other like poison. Once their battle is underway, no holds are barred. It becomes a deliriously mean-spirited free-for-all in which nothing--not the pets, not the shoes, not the cars and certainly not themselves--is sacred.
