This is a collection of short stories about the American housewife. I absolutely enjoyed this book. Each story was completely different, and extremely entertaining. Some of these stories had a twist at the ending, some were short and to the point. Ellis gives fully developed characters within a short time-frame.
Some housewives are subversive while others are hilariously frightening. These stories were told in a variety of ways. Personally, I found the one told strictly through emails most riveting. Ellis’ tongue-in-cheek writing is very arresting and I thoroughly enjoyed the more sarcastic aspects of her various characters. I highly recommend this book.
Just a warning, though, don’t irritate your neighbors.
