Finally, in the most clearly autobiographical story, a writer gives up on the commitment-impaired men of New York and goes to London to find a husband. There she trolls for the typical Englishman--"a guy who had sex with his socks on, possessed a microscopic willy, and came in two minutes." Bushnell is famous for this sort of sexual brashness, and the book is full of her sharp wit, both in and out of the boudoir. She also clearly enjoys her characters and their misadventures, with one exception: the politically correct Winnie, with her distaste for alcohol, night life, and casual sex, inspires an odd sort of authorial contempt. Otherwise, though, Bushnell's ironic takes on the sexual foibles of the rich and famous are mordant, mischievous fun. --Lesley Reed --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The characters are boring, shallow and just plain ugly.
The characters are shallow, and a good author should know that it is essential for the reader to feel a connection with the main characters.
I didn't even finish reading the last story because it was going nowhere when I realized that there were only 5 pages left in the book.
Not quite sure what this was about or the point of it was. Only finished it to see if the stories all tied together. VERY disappointed.Published 11 hours ago by Rhonda Proctor

This book is 4 stories about 4 different girls. I read the first two. I tried to read the last two but they were depressing and I wasn't in the mood to be depressed.Published on January 6, 2013 by Judy C. Carpenter
