Recommended for: lustful urban housewives, fish-loving poets
Read in October, 2007

Apparantly this is Chick Lit Month for me, a respite from my usual state of book snobbery. Lauren Fox writes winningly: I read this adultery drama in just four subway rides (two daily commutes). But I could have done without the ever-present Angel of Morality. Fox worries too much that we'll judge Emily (the main character) poorly and, in effect, ends up doing so herself. That said, Emily's relationship with her best friend Meg (who, thankfully, is no sidekick) is beautifully drawn; it's nice to see a novel spend so much honest time with the complex, competitive, but ultimately steadfast love between two old and dear friends.
