Sheila Levine Is Dead and Living in New York by Gail Parent
Sheila Levine Is Dead and Living in New York

jesamine1957, March 4, 2008

This is the funniest, truest book I have ever read. I read it originally when it was first published, some 30 years ago, and have been reading it ever since. I have destroyed 4 copies and am now on my 5th. Sheila's life as a single girl in New York City says it all for single girls everywhere. I still laugh til I cry. Like Sheila, I'm still waiting for the small but perfect diamond and proclaim to the world, "Here's my husband-dirty water."(Her mother's maxim, don't throw out dirty water until you have clean.) Read this book, you won't be disappointed.
