The Lady Who Liked Clean Restrooms by J. P. Donleavy

Jocelyn Guenevere Marchantiere Jones, sometime resident of Scarsdale, educated at Bryn Mawr, has been brought up always to behave like a lady. But what with chiselling divorce lawyers, fraudulent financial advisors and importunate and oversezed suitors, the patience of even the most impeccable lady might wear thin. Which is why Joy ends up with a pair of matching Purdey shotguns across her knees and a .38 Smith & Wesson under her pillow, waiting for the next lying bastard to cross her threshold. Trigger-happy she may be, and no longer quite welcome in polite society, but Joy Jones, one of J.P. Donleavy's most inspired comic creations, will always follow her South Carolina granny's advice on the matter of clean rest rooms, a preference which has some rather surprising consequences.

I was browsing at the BN store and could not find a single book that seemed interesting. After over an hour of browsing I came across this book I only picked it up because the title is a FACT about me! From then I started reading the first page and couldn't put it down. Its a fast read I finished it by the next morning. The story is really good and the end is very unexpected. Its a little depressing but very exciting. The writting style is good although its a little redundant and absurd at times, I think the author goes out of his way to make it 'cool' but all in all its a very good story and a fast read. It will pick you up and make you think. Its a good breather from all the silly contemporary books out there and better than the historical fictions!!!
