I loved Dolan's first funny novel Helen of Pasadena. Elizabeth The First Wife is as smart and funny as Helen, but also more complex (in a good way) and more plugged into popular culture in a way that will make you laugh out loud AND think some deep thoughts. Somehow Dolan manages to weave together the protagonist Elizabeth, a woman you no doubt already know in real life, with a charming, funny ex-husband who is now a major Hollywood action star, the complicated relationships among sisters who all go their own way, a Nobel prize-winning father and the lessons Shakespeare TRIED to teach us about dating and love and sex. As if that is not enough, the story turns on a media media firestorm that is totally believable despite the fact that A Midsummer's Night Dream and talk radio are both involved. Phew. As I read it, I thought it would be made into a fantastic movie. Read it now before it is (and cast the movie in your head.)
Since reading Dolan's first novel, I have gotten hooked on both of her weekly podcasts. Listen to her show Chaos Chronicles and the one she does with her sisters called Satellite Sisters and you will understand the humor and the humanity she brings to her writing.
