Adult Fiction SCHMAIS
Summary: Beloved in hardcover, The Perfect Elizabeth was a favorite among readers of Laura Zigman's Animal Husbandry, Anna Maxted's Getting Over It, and other wickedly funny books about smart young women falling in and out of love. Hailed "a luscious, frothy tale of Gen-X love" (USA Today), this modern-day Sense and Sensibility is a witty and hilarious novel about two sisters: Liza, a would-be poet who spends miserable days as a legal secretary; and Bette, a graduate student writing her dissertation on Toast in the English Novel. Throughout this sassy novel, the sisters deal with unemployment, infidelity, interfering parents, Hollywood, lemmings, a pregnancy, and a wedding. The Perfect Elizabeth is as indulgent and cathartic as a pint of Haagen-Dazs.
