Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Rita Domino is engaged to the successful, handsome, ever-so-devoted Dr. Evan Moore-everyone's idea of the perfect spouse. "We're all lucky to have Evan," chirps her mother. "It's the nicest thing you ever did for our family." So what's the problem? Struggling with everything from feminist sensibilities to a fear of monogamy, the sharp-witted, outspoken Rita resists the wedding plans every step of the way, much to the dismay of her traditional Italian family, and her employers at Lady of Leisure magazine, who are documenting-and orchestrating-the nuptials. To Rita's horror, her "impending doom" becomes a media event, and the couple's innermost thoughts, public information. What ensues is a spate of family quarrels and second thoughts, as well as some surprising plot turns. With a delightfully offbeat cast of characters and punchy dialogue, Rentschler has written a wry commentary on the institution of marriage and its effect on the betrothed. However, as the big day approaches and Rita's nervousness rises to an irritating near-hysteria, readers may wish she paid more attention to her own earlier insight: "the promise was only love, not eternal happiness, and it provides no guarantees."

The writing style takes a little while to get used to because it's almost stream-of-conscientiousness fast with deep thoughts and creative analogies. This is the kind of stuff my college professors wanted me to read and use as basis for my own creative writing. The main character is in the middle of a war between herself and the rest of the world, tryig to win a losing battle for her single status. She's terrified of becoming a married woman, and slowly pulls back her layers to understand simultaneouly with the reader just why that is. The story is both humorous and emotional. I'm not surprised it was turned into a movie, which I'd love to watch.

Format: Paperback
....when I first read it 6 years ago. I recently reread it and loved it again. It is funny and touching and insightful. It would make a wonderful, wonderful gift for a jittery bride-to-be, but even if you are not, pick up and read it!It will make you think and question things that you thought you knew. It will leave a smile on your face and a warm feeling in your heart! (beware commuters-if you read while using public transportation be prepared to be stared at: you WILL laugh out loud!)
