Em's Awful Good Fortune (2021)
Marcie Maxfield
"Em's Awful Good Fortune brilliantly skewers the rarified life of the overly precious 'tagalong' expat life. The novel reads like your best friend's blisteringly funny diary, especially if your best friend happens to be a stand-up comic with a knife's-edge wit who can make mincemeat out of any philandering husband. . . . Find a chair, open the first page of this sizzling story, and fly around the world on that trip you've been itching to take all year."
