jenn aka the picky girl

Love the beginning, and he is SO right that a good beginning is a microcosm of the entire book.

Erica re: work nemesis: "I truly truly hate him." HAHAHAHAHA Anyone who works in an office totally gets this.

As Matthew says, Tom is a better version of most of us miserable workers. He says what we can't.

Yay! I love when writers give props to Cheever.

And bravo on the comic nature of the novel. It certainly makes it no less serious, and I appreciate intelligent humor when it's done well.

Wilco! And Austin!

Ok - need to stop my fangirliness and go to bed. Thanks for such a great interview!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
