Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Simon & Schuster (UK)

Date: January 2016

Duration: 3 hours 46 minutes


A sharp, funny, delightfully unhinged collection of stories set in the dark world of domesticity, American Housewifefeatures murderous ladies who lunch, celebrity treasure-hunters, and the best bra-fitter south of the Mason Dixon line.

Meet the women of American Housewife:they wear lipstick, pearls, and sunscreen, even when it's cloudy. They casserole. They pinwheel. They pump the salad spinner like a CPR dummy. And then they kill a party-crasher, carefully stepping around the body to pull cookies out of the oven.

These twelve irresistible stories take us from a haunted pre-war Manhattan apartment building to the set of a rigged reality television show, from the unique initiation ritual of a book club to the getaway car of a pageant princess on the lam, from the gallery opening of a tinfoil artist to the fitting room of a legendary lingerie shop.

Vicious, fresh, and nutty as a poisoned Snicker, American Housewifeis an uproarious, pointed commentary on womanhood.
