Publisher's Summary

Expert satirist Benjamin Cheever, author of Famous After Death, uses his dark sense of humor to deliver another searing look at suburbia.
Literary editor Stuart Cross and his wife Andie, a film critic, hire the talented Louise to be nanny to their two young girls. Louise’s perfection, however, begins to irritate the ambitious, but less accomplished Stuart and Andie, and soon the parents’ jealousy gets the better of them.

A surprise, and not in a good way...

From the blurb, I was expecting a noir-like tale of life-with-nanny gone terribly wrong, an account of a bucolic familial paradise devolving into sinister mayhem.

However, this book is just a bunch of trendoid conversations and aspirational remarks approaching wittiness, with added observations on the elitist life.

Not amusing, not enjoyable, with lots of "Old Boys Club" chats that seem dated, and to which I could not relate.
