Frances Price tart widow, possessive mother and Upper East Side force of nature is in dire straits, beset by scandal. Her adult son Malcolm is no help, mired in a permanent state of arrested development. And then theres their cat, who Frances believes houses the spirit of her late husband, an infamously immoral world-class cad whose gruesome tabloid death rendered Frances and Malcolm social outcasts. The curious trio head for the exit, escape pariahdom and land in Paris a backdrop for self-destruction and economic ruin, and peopled by a number of singular characters- a bashful private investigator, an aimless psychic and Mme. Reynard, aggressive houseguest and friendly American expat. Brimming with pathos and wit, French Exit is a one-of-a-kind tragedy of manners, a riotous send-up of high society and a moving story of mothers and sons
