From the keenly observant author of The Fairer Sex comes a collection of sexy, razor-sharp short stories that swing a wrecking ball at our assumptions about women—what they desire, what they’re working toward, and what they’re willing to wait for.
In these witty, bracing, and poignant stories, Michelle Miller follows six women on the often-surprising path to satisfaction.
An ambitious corporate consultant reflects on the choices she’s made when she reconnects with an ex. An NYU grad’s desire for a married alumnus lands her in a precarious position. A frustrated dog owner tests the appeal of her bichon-poodle puppy at the dog park. Two best friends discover their discomfort zone when they play with three inevitable words: “Should we date?” A trophy wife’s practical choice takes a dark turn in the South of France. And a marketing consultant faced with her boyfriend’s blindsiding proposal to sleep with other people decides that it’s not such a bad idea.
