What's on Felicity Huffman's Bookshelf?
By Melissa Bank
I so appreciate Bank's acute observations and distinctly female take in these interconnected stories. In the last one, a friend offers to go shopping with Jane, the narrator, to help her find an outfit to wear to a wedding. Standing in the dressing room, Jane, who's a size 10, finds the perfect dress but only in a 2 or 4. She fantasizes about the woman who bought her size 10. We've all been in that moment, but thanks to Bank's wit, we experience it with new insight.
