A well -written, witty, absurdist satire! Funny from beginning to end--and it ends exactly like it HAS to end.

Satirical look at Reagan era. A meek woman has a psychotic breakdown and becomes a first rate banker. Absurdist plot told in jaunty prose.

I read this book on the recommendation of the weekly recommends of Barnes and Noble. I was looking for a light read that would make me laugh. I did not find this read to meet that expectation. Seducing a high school boy is not a laughting matter. Instead, I found this story to be a sad, but true story even though it was over the top describing how mental illness and believing you are more important than anyone should be can lead to mayhem and destruction. Maybe this is just a product of the state of mind I am in now. Disappointed
