Read in August, 2009

This novel is actually a collection of 4 novellas that are completely unrelated, save for a few slight reaccurring appearances by supporting characters. The first story, "Nice N' Easy," details the life of Janey Wilcox, a character also featured in Buchnell's book Trading Up , as she sleeps her way to a better summer house in the Hamptons. The second tale is about a married couple, each unsatisfied with their marriage and their careers as writers. The third story, the most unbelievable, albeit maybe the most entertaining, is the confession of a paranoid princess. The final story seems semi-biographical since it features a sex columnist who goes to London to do an article about British men. Other reviewers found this book full of satricial wit, but each of the stories ultimately fell flat, being too one-dimentional.
