Happily Never After
By: Jane De Suza;
Description: Tina Raja's average day involves a houseful of kids, animals, fleas, leaking pipes and sundry relatives. Is this the marriage she signed up for? And anyway, with an absentee husband, can she be certain she's married still? Okay, so there are a couple of options: she could have an affair (but only if the blinking phone will stop ringing); she could see her therapist (but he's an absolute dingbat); she could pour her woes out on her secret blog (but her readers are lecherous brutes). Meanwhile, loneliness and bad plumbing aside, her best friend is mooning over a guy called Moo, her ten-year-old daughter is writing a super-secret diary of her own, and her sister is being a dolt as usual. There just might be one silver lining, though, in the form of a kissable dentist. But hello, is her husband even paying enough attention to feel jealous? Look, guys, this is pretty serious stuff. STOP laughing.
