Abstract:

"This collection of short fiction by established and emerging American and British women writers takes a hard look at love today - exposing its flaws with unflinching, often hilarious, candor. In one story, the narrator is "aghast" to find an unknown man in her bed upon waking and unsure how to find out who he is. Another woman sends her resume for a girlfriend position - and with-stands multiple rounds of interviews. There's the strictly casual arrangement, the necrophile, the hot pursuit of a one-night stand across the Atlantic, and the chatroom romance. Well beyond the rosy chicklit stereotypes, these stories show how pleasure ad chaos make strange bed fellows."--Jacket.
