Synopsis: “HIGHLY ENTERTAINING…SIT BACK IN THE BUBBLES AND ENJOY.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer
Brenda Kovner, a Washington columnist, advice dispenser, and amateur psychologist, doesn’t consider herself intrusive, just extremely interested in helping. If she knows the answer, she can’t shut up–even if no one’s listening.
Since Brenda knows what’s best–for everyone–she secretly decides she must murder her son Wally’s prospective father-in-law, before he can get to Wally. She has a foolproof plan. In fact, she has a million of them. But first she’s got a few kinky desires of her own to satisfy.
“Viorst keeps us laughing….A serious look at family and cultural issues while still a farce, narrated by a needling Machiavellian who keeps winning us over.” –San Francisco Chronicle
“A wry look at the follies of superficial urbanites…Enjoy.” –The Washington Post Book World
“Acerbic and extremely funny…Done with the arch, sardonic flavor familiar to readers of Ms. Viorst.” –The Baltimore Sun
