Crash Diet by Jill McCorkle

Here, from the remarkable novelist who wrote Ferris Beach, Tending to Virginia, July 7th, and The Cheer Leader, is Jill McCorkle's first book of short fiction. These eleven sparkling, uninhibited stories address her favorite subject: women who take matters into their own hands. McCorkle has yet again produced irrepressibly frank and funny portraits of remarkable characters.

If you like short stories, you'll like this book. The author has quite an ability to develop stories in a short amount of time, and an understanding for different character's points of view.

It is not worth the time the stories are slow some have no real value
