Summary
Meet the women of American Housewife: they wear lipstick, pearls, and sunscreen, even when it's cloudy. They casserole. They pinwheel. They pump the salad spinner like it's a CPR dummy. And then they kill a party crasher, carefully stepping around the body to pull cookies out of the oven. These twelve stories take us from a haunted prewar Manhattan apartment building to the the unique initiation ritual of a book club. From the getaway car of a pageant princess on the lam, to the joyful Sunday-night poker game of a middle-aged woman with cash, no kids, and time on her hands
