Until I read a review online somewhere that referred to this book as Sex in the City set in Italy, I quite liked it. The author brings us to some truly exotic situations. The lead-off story is about a woman who buys two Brazilian prostitutes for her husband on his birthday. There's another about an American in a showdown of social mores with poor Africans. However, as you churn through all ten or so stories, you'll be wearied by the sameness: Every protagonist is black, Harvard-educated, proud and dismissive of men. The women start out interesting, but end up quite dull.
