Good in Bedby Jennifer Weiner
Synopses & Reviews
For twenty-eight years, things have been tripping along nicely for Cannie Shapiro. Sure, her mother has come charging out of the closet, and her father has long since dropped out of her world. But she loves her friends, her rat terrier, Nifkin, and her job as pop culture reporter for The Philadelphia Examiner. She's even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body.
But the day she opens up a national women's magazine and sees the words "Loving a Larger Woman" above her ex-boyfriend's byline, Cannie is plunged into misery...and the most amazing year of her life. From Philadelphia to Hollywood and back home again, she charts a new course for herself: mourning her losses, facing her past, and figuring out who she is and who she can become.
"Weiner's witty, original, fast moving debut features a lovable heroine, a solid cast, snappy dialogue and a poignant take on life's priorities. This is a must-read for any woman who struggles with body image, or for anyone who cares about someone who does." Publishers Weekly
"Pick up Good In Bed and I promise you'll be introduced to one of the funniest full-figured heroines to come along in years. Cannie Shapiro's wild ride through crazy romantic entanglements, dysfunctional family dilemmas, and battles with an ex-boyfriend who just won't go away will keep you turning the pages right up until the story's tender, touching finale." Susan Segrest, Mode Magazine
"Good In Bed is a delight, a contemporary Cinderella tale told with intelligence, wit, and style." Susan Isaacs, author of Almost Paradise and Red, White, and Blue
"Cannie's adventures will strike a chord with all young women struggling to find their place in the world, especially those larger than a size eight." Library Journal
The day pop-culture journalist Cannie Shapiro reads her ex-boyfriend's published story about their sex life is the day her life changes. Embarking on a journey through her past she confronts her ex, deals with her lesbian mother, and sifts through the answer to how she got where she is — single, angry and exposed.
