Publisher's Summary

Frances is a 21-year-old college student in Dublin; she performs at spoken word events with her best friend and ex-lover, Bobbi. When they are profiled by journalist Melissa, they enter an orbit of beautiful houses and raucous dinner parties. Initially unimpressed, Frances begins an affair with Nick, Melissa's husband, which gives way to an unexpected intimacy. Desperate to reconcile her desires and vulnerabilities of her body, Frances's intellectual certainties begin to yield to something new: a disorienting way of living from moment to moment.

I bought this as 'Single, Carefree Mellow' was intelligent and funny and this book appeared under the 'customers also bought' section in the recommendations. This book is neither. The heroine is a 21 year old virgin who has an affair with a man who is tall, wealthy (but is a marxist), devastatingly handsome, saintly and loves babies! His wife is conveniently a bitch (not that he would think of her like that) who had had several affairs (he hasn't had any of course) and who works away from home.
I gave up at that point as by continuing I might regurgitate breakfast. I really hope this is supposed to be satire, but suspect not.
