Wertmuller's talents do not lie in writing novels. Although somewhat comedic, the writing is insubstantial and weak. This book would have been better executed as a film. I can envision Giannini as Sammy, fully realizing the ironies inherent in the plot, and offering a performance perhaps rivaling 'Seven Beauties.' Alas, the characters instead lie flat on the page.
