Summary
Ray Porter is a buttoned-down 50-something executive who reaches out to a much younger woman as his Los Angeles playmate. Mirabelle, a 20-something with a pile of promises, debt, and depression, fades away in a slow corner of Saks, while trying to sell unneeded formal gloves. She's a wisp of a person, with a cat who doesn't love her, and when she finds a suitor, it's Jeremy, a scruffy artist who babbles on about speakers. When the gentlemanly Porter calls, his appearance in her life begins to make her whole. It also immediately sets her up for sadness, because Ray thinks of Mirabella as a precious outlet for sex, while Mirabelle, very mistakenly, sees Ray as a potential lifelong mate.
