Read in January, 2011

A fairly lightweight comedy of manners about infidelity. I think the book's structure was odd and distracting -- he'll break a scene right in the middle of a conversation, start a new chapter called "Ugly" or "Disney", and continue the scene. However, the main character is an HR guy for a software company, and I really liked that subplot. He shows how the Gen Y engineers and "creatives" view their jobs as a necessary evil, easily cast aside for better offers or more interesting careers in, say, online poker. I see this every day and find it fascinating.
