Once in a while, you have to read something that makes you giggle, makes you feel good. This is the first Marian Keyes book I've read, so I don't know if it's typical of her writing, but the book's a lot of fun. It takes place in the world of fashion magazines--where the word 'cutthroat' was probably invented--and in Ireland, where fashion has a different meaning than in New York or London.
The story is not slapstick but rather sitcomesque, more Frasier than Friends. A great summer read, sitting on the boat and sipping a cool glass of white wine.
