"I fix myself a hot chocolate because it is a gateway drug to reading."
I don't usually read a lot of short story collections, but I kept hearing about this one and it sounded interesting. The stories usually entertaining and were filled with irony and humor. Most of the featured "housewives" were a bit overkill, but they did the trick and had me laughing more than a few times. I also enjoyed the focus on literary and publishing themes. Some of my favorite stories included "Hello! Welcome to Book Club," "How to Be a Patron of the Arts" and "My Novel is Brought You to By the Good People at Tampax."
