American Wife (New York Times Notable Books) by Curtis Sittenfeld
American Wife (New York Times Notable Books)

ldlombardo, January 3, 2010

This is the quintessential book of the decade. It is about a woman born in the 20th Century finding her way into the 21st Century. She is good, she is bad. She makes measured choices. She is not perfect, but she is perfectly interesting. "Faction" or fairy tale, this is a story that had me turning pages into the wee small hours of the morning. And don't even get me started on who she selected to be her lifetime partner. Boot-kickin' good!
