Is there botox in hell?,
This review is from: The Craigslist Murders: A Novel (Paperback)
Brenda Cullerton's The Craigslist Murders is a murderously satirical romp through the land of the uber-rich and the well-heeled but tortured souls who reside there. A lovingly crafted celebration of New York City emerges through the closely observed details and urban ironies that can come only from someone who walks the city streets with her eyes and her soul wide open. Piquant aphorisms and cynical observations about life, love, pleasure and despair are embedded like jewels in this merciless satire of characters addicted to over-the-top materialism and self-gratification. How does Ms. Cullerton know such much about the rich, the poor, the decorating trade, and the peaks and pits of life in New York? Who knows, but this reader thanks her for the marvelous ride through such a forbidding, and deliciously rendered funhouse!
