Product Details

Praise

“Funny in a sly, true, painful way.”—Los Angeles Times

“On-target, poignant . . . a study of one woman’s evolution from passivity to self-esteem.”—The Washington Post

“Witty . . . [Markoe] finds humor in those not-so-Kodak moments. So will you.”—Glamour

“Bickering parents, weird sex, and ambiguous floral arrangements pave the road to enlightenment in legendary comedy writer Merrill Markoe’s first novel. . . . Along the way she reminds readers that the heart is a fragile little critter. And sometimes the best we can do is make a wish and blow those candles out.” —O magazine

“A dark, witty story about one woman’s attempt to find the right man and not kill her mother.” —Talk

“Witty . . . Markoe’s very funny and astute about women’s insecurities.” —The Hartford Courant

“Perfect for curling up with at the end of the day when we long for the company of good friends, but they’ve all gone to bed. You know, after watching the Late Show.” —St. Petersburg Times

“Laugh-out-loud debut fiction . . . classy stuff that deserves tons of flowers from dazed and satisfied readers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[Markoe] brings her crisp, gratifyingly feminist sense of humor and flair for satirizing the lives of frustrated singles to an irresistible first novel.” —Booklist

“The perfect gift for all women who face birthdays with grim determination, pepper spray and sharp fingernail files . . . Markoe teaches the joy of laughing through pain and bubbling through toil and trouble.” —Publishers Weekly
