If Lionel Shriver weren't such a terrific writer, she might have had a glorious career as a sociologist.It's the best of the bunch, investigating what happens when Jillian Frisk's best friend, tennis partner and former lover Weston Babansky, aka Baba, decides to marry another woman, Paige Myer, and Paige lays down an ultimatum: her or me. With extraordinary precision and uncanny insight, Shriver charts the aftermath of Baba's proposal and Frisk's impulsive wedding gift of the artwork that gives the story its name. It's sad, sweet and funny, qualities sometimes missing in other stories.Still, even if "Property" isn't your dream house, it's a diverting enough place to spend an afternoon or two.
