Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons by Lorna Landvik
I don't have too much to say about Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons. It went down easily, like a Sprite, but who writes about the experience of drinking a Sprite? The real problem was that as I drank this Sprite I was reading about a book club that was reading real meals like Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe and In the Spirit of Crazy Horse by Peter Matthiessen (and yet, saying little or nothing about them). I'm assuming Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons would be more interesting if you raised children in a close-knit neighborhood between 1960 and 1990.
