With a wicked sense of humor and the satirist's eye for detail, Carol Conn captures the frenetic and competitive lifestyle in the Big Apple. This is a book that's bright and breezy, yet as it skewers our conventional wisdom, ranging from fashion to medicine and pop psychology, it leaves you with a good deal to think about. Can't wait for the movie!!

Carol Conn has written a lively and captivating read. She chooses as her subject a frenetic New Yorker and throws her into the perfect storm of a day gone horribly wrong...while shopping. Taking a theme that, in the hands of another writer could have been just a bit of fluff, Ms. Conn wields her considerable intelligence to craft a story that is witty, fast-moving, and charmingly wacky. It's EXACTLY the book you'll want to read when you need to disconnect for awhile and watch someone else's life spin out of control...and hilariously so. I LOVED THIS BOOK!

One of my favorite authors is Hiaasen. He unleashes uproariously funny circumstances that define his native Florida to perfection. In that same fashion, Conn drops you into her resident New York City for a modern day Lucille Ball moment. Conn's New York story is a delight, full of iconic locales and an abundance of zany characters. Mascara Saturday swiftly and deftly places you into the very logical craziness of a city the author knows so well. Circumstances, out of control, take you on a delightful romp that is at once impossible and believable. Conn is a colorful writer, with a style that is well paced and full of street level rhythms. You begin to understand New York City better and that its labyrinth of systems could unwittingly conspire against you. Conn shows you how a slight misstep can become the new comedy of errors. Try Mascara Saturday on - it is wonderful.

Loved Carol Conn's new book where she captured fond memories from my own cosmetic career in retail stores. It is a lively rendition of how a shopping trip to Bloomies on Saturday afternoon turns into an adventure in the hospital and more. It is fast-paced with lots of juicy details about how she navigates her way from agressive sales personnel and perfume spritzers to medical staff. A delightful and entertaining must-read!

This is a very clever novel with an outlandish theme that draws the reader in and creates enormous sympathy for the narrator. The characters, while to some extent exaggerated in the eye of the narrator, resonate as real people. The book is a quick, fun read and quite a hoot.

Mascara Saturday could be any day a woman or even a man goes shopping in Manhattan or Beverly Hills or even Paris. What should and could be a relaxing and calm day from life's stresses, is here eloquently, articulately and deftly turned into a nightmare of a day - a day we have all experienced in our lives. It is written eloquently and articulately with humor, candor and insight making it hard to turn away from in one reading. An enjoyable must read - kudos to the author! See you at Bloomingdales.......

Carol Conn's Mascara-Saturday has something people tend to engage with. Both fantasy and reality intermingle in a witty plot which has a surprising ending.

A fright tale that knocks magical realism on its butts.

A must!

I laughed so much that my waterproof mascara started to run. Mascara Saturday is an hysterically funny, urban tale of what can happen when an afternoon of retail therapy at Bloomingdales escalates into all-out madness for one Rachel Holtner. Things only get weirder when the hospitalized Rachel butts heads with the bizarre Dr. David Halberman, as he attempts to treat her for Shopping Impairment Syndrome. And that's just the beginning. With Mascara Saturday, the phrase, "shop til you drop," takes on an entirely new meaning. Author Carol Conn writes with an eye for seeing the absurd in what's become accepted by our culture and going straight for the jugular. Conn keeps the tone and pacing smart and sharp, packing in the laughs page after page. A fast, fun read.
