Run Catch Kiss is a novel that will appeal to a very specific audience--fans of Amy Sohn; young college graduates who'd like to imagine it's really this easy to achieve notoriety in a city like New York; and readers who enjoy lots of name-dropping, club-hopping, and frank descriptions of sex and other bodily functions. Sohn includes several of Ariel's columns ("Stench of a Woman," for example, or "Smutlife") as well as the letters she gets in response. In between, Ariel and her cronies and assorted one-night stands hang out in places with names like BarF and BarBarella, and drop pop references to Gen-X movies and music. Sohn delivers it all up with moxie, making up for the novel's literary weaknesses by sheer full-frontal outrageousness. --Alix Wilber --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Not here, however. And not in this book. It's not just that it's a shallow, boring book. It's a lazy book. Sohn probably received a huge advance for a novel, and she basically just sends in a hodge podge of her columns -- dumbing them down in the process. I would have rather she saved the effort and just released an anthology of her New York Press columns, which, though shallow, at least didn't aspire to any kind of deep insight. But in the current form, this novel is -- well, embarrassing. Women talking with pottymouth had its day of novelty five years ago -- when Sex and the City the column first hit, when Liz Phair received critic's plaudits for singing about "$%#^ and Run." Now, it feels forced -- aiming to shock -- aiming to titillate -- and succeeding in neither. Let Sohn wind up in her eventual inevitable destination -- a talking head on "relationships," perhaps post on a late night cable version of The View -- and let fiction remain in the hands of the pros.
Is she trying to be Bridget Jones? Don't know. She should have tried to put together a decent story.
I got it as a gift, so I didn't lose any money. But, I'll never get my time back.
