What’s a Girl Gotta Do?
How can you go wrong with a smart, sexy, funny, uncompromisingly feminist, just-insecure-enough-to-make-you-relate-to-her journalist-turned-sleuth with a cat named Louise Bryant and a neighbor who hallucinates transvestite orgies? You can't. Even if you don't like mysteries you should read this book. Watch Robin Hudson—heroine extraordinaire—quip her way through murder, blackmail, encounters with her asshole ex-husband, and a visit to the sperm bank with her loathsome boss. Winner of the prize for best one-line sex description of the year: "We tore each other's clothes off and were pagan and wicked, several times."
