What to Read This Summer
By Jami Attenberg
Never get between a man and his mastiff: That's one hard lesson in Instant Love, Jami Attenberg's fiction debut—connected tales of women who angle online, offshore, out of town, and in country for men they're afraid to catch. "To give in to complete satisfaction," muses a rueful loner in "Sarah Lee Waits for Love," "is to allow that it can disappear as quickly as it arrived." Reality bites.
