Primates of Park Avenue: a memoir by Wednesday Martin. I read a review that had snippets of an author interview. Martin moved into a high end NYC neighborhood. The local women were constantly jockeying and vying for social status and position. Martin used her anthropological training to analyze the people and figure how to insert herself into the pack.
The Idea of Love by Patti Callahan Henry. Widow sells her story to a screenwriter who needs a hit. Her story, and the screenplay, are not quite true.
