“Have I Got a Guy for You” edited by Alix Strauss
Have you ever wished that “Sex and the City” was a book (okay, other than the actual book called “Sex and the City“)? If so, perhaps you would enjoy “Have I Got a Guy for You.”
“Have I Got a Guy for You,” is a collection of 26 stories about girls whose moms set them up on blind dates. Each individual story is clever, well written, and humorous. Read all at once, however, they get a bit repetitive. I would estimate that about 75% of the stories are set in New York and at least half of them involve Jewish mothers.
This book would be great to pick up from time to time, reading one or, at most, two stories in a sitting. These stories would be great to read after a bad date, when you wish you were having even a bad date, when you want to remind yourself why you’re glad you are no longer dating, or even in a long line at the grocery store.
