The Girl That He Marries

A novel by

The novel that Gloria Steinem called "the feminist Jekyll-and-Hyde of our time - and we recognize the monster in ourselves while we're laughing."

Outrageous and outrageously funny, The Girl That He Marries is the story of Stephanie - nearly thirty and still single, a bright and attractive young woman with an unerring instinct for unmarriageable men and a nagging fear she's going to grow old alone. Enter Richard: urbane, ambitious, and eminently marriageable. The adored son of an adoring mother, Richard has been adroitly manipulating people all his life. He's especially adroit at the game of love.

Before she knows it, Stephanie is hooked on Richard. But before Richard knows it, Stephanie has figured out the rules - and very soon is beating him at his own artful game. In the process, she twists herself into the girl he would marry - and becomes a very different woman. The trouble is, as Stephanie finds out too late, when you play the mating game, you risk getting stuck with the prize.

"[A] hilarious romance a la Kafka." - The New York Times Book Review
