Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the ultimate hilarious, page-turning novel about four women who turn a book club into a secret lunchtime gathering where they read to one another erotic stories they have composed.

The women, aged 20-50, work at a law firm and reflect different worlds — Lux, a young, white trash secretary; Brooke, a rich, debutante artist; Aimee, pregnant and married to a man who is never there for her; and Margot, a brilliant 50-year-old lawyer who thinks she has it all but hasn't had a female friend since she was seven. This novel is about their lives and needs, and about how these remarkably different women find themselves deeply bonding in their own very special community.

Review:

"This debut novel by playwright and standup comic Kovetz promises more than it delivers in almost every sense, starting with the 'erotica' of the title. The club in question comprises four bored women working in a law firm who meet over lunch to share naughty bits from their own writing — barely erotic, poorly written passages that often devolve into sub — Sex and the City patter. The men are one-dimensional foils (the abuser, the wimp, the sexually confused, etc.); the women are defined primarily by their opposition to each other: Lux is a dim working-class secretary while Brooke is an artist and former debutante, paralegal Aimee is pregnant and abandoned while lawyer Margot is menopausal and defiantly single. They never click as a group, and perhaps they aren't supposed to; as the novel progresses, it becomes clear that this is Lux's story. Strong and sympathetic, she deserves a novel all to herself." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"[D]ebut novelist Kovetz shows empathy for both her female and male characters and allows them their problems and faults without forcing the reader to wallow in them. Women's fiction crossed with chick lit, this work will appeal across genre lines." Library Journal

Review:

"Four very different women, who at first seem to have nothing in common, grow closer as each week passes — not that their relationships don't have problems — but therein lies the fun of reading Kovetz's sometimes raunchy but always entertaining account of four strong characters who become friends and, in the end, much more." Booklist

Review:

"Who knew writing about and reading aloud dirty sexual peccadilloes could be so cathartic and life-affirming?Scintillating, often-droll tale of female friendship loaded, of course, with delicious erotica." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

This hilarious, page-turning novel is about four women, ages 20 to 50, who work in a law firm and who begin to meet at lunchtime where they read to one another erotic stories they have composed.
