AMANDA BRIGHT@HOME by DANIELLE CRITTENDEN
Maybe you know Amanda. Maybe you are Amanda. Whoever you
are, you will love Amanda. An important, shrewd, and laugh-
out-loud funny debut novel that answers the question: What
happens when Bridget Jones or the Sex and the City girls
get married and have babies?
Nothing ever prepared Amanda for this: not her elite
college degree, not her brainy friends, not her mother the
feminist heroine. At age 35, she finds herself at home with
two children, mopping spills and singing "The Itsy-Bitsy
Spider." It doesn't help that her husband's face is all
over national television -- or that her best friend is
dating a billionaire -- or that every woman she knows seems
to have a plastic surgeon and an interior decorator.
While everyone else is racing up the fast track, it's
getting hard for Amanda to remember why she left work in
the first place.
Set amidst the glamor and power of boom-time Washington,
D.C., Amanda Bright is a novel about status and ambition --
marriage and jealousy -- and a woman's struggle to discover
the things that matter most. Amanda Bright@Home will become
an anthem for a generation of women that is learning that
success is not always found at the office.
