A PBS find!

The gimmicky stories in this anthology of Irish chick lit address familiar female concerns: struggles with money, food, sex and relationships.

In Martina Devlin's "At Least There'll Be Diamonds," the superficial protagonist is so desperate to marry for money that she weds another woman — even though she's straight. Kathy Reynolds, the financially strapped heroine of Patricia Scanlan's "Facades," learns to value the other riches in her happily married life when she sees the pain of her wealthy but lonely friend, Mari. Morag Prunty's "Spinning Sugar" depicts the relationship between a curmudgeonly male pastry chef and his gluttonous, overweight best customer. He teaches her to savor her food, and she learns to eat for quality as opposed to quantity. Clare Dowling's "Deep Throat," centers on housewives empowered by pornography.

My 157th read of 2007.

Overall, not a great read. I'm not even sure why I kept going, other than that with short stories, you just never know what you are going to get. The Irish Girls are Back in Town was a sweet story, as was Part-Time Lover, and Deep Throat definitely had me giggling. The rest were pretty forgettable.
