Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas Eve in Manhattan. An eminent plastic surgeon slips on the ice, lands on his butt, and sprains his ankle. So far, so good. A woman such as he's never known yanks him to his feet and conjures the miracle of a taxi. Harrison recuperates with Franz Schubert, Bette Davis, and a foundling cat. Then it's back to rhinoplasties, liposuction, and the peccadilloes of his obnoxious colleagues. It is only when he collides again with that strangely helpful woman that things take a wild and revolutionary turn. Sparkling, polemical, irreverent, slippery, and sexy, Mimi is a love story, a call to arms, and Lucy Ellmann's most tender and dazzling audiobook. It's also the feminist novel of the century. (So far.)

Truly dreadful

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Extremely boring and tedious. Really struggled to get through to the end. The narrative is dreadful with endless lists, characters you could not care less about and nothing really happens

Has Mimi put you off other books in this genre?


Would you be willing to try another one of Matthew Josdal’s performances?

No, his voice was annoying, though not helped by writing

What character would you cut from Mimi?

All the main ones
