Synopsis:

From Maggie Estep, heralded author of DIARY OF AN EMOTIONAL IDIOT, comes this darkly funny collection of interconnected stories.Jody Ray, a young psychiatrist, conceals her own nymphomania and a penchant for stiletto boots behind a conservative navy work suit. After Jody meets Rob and moves into his apartment, life for this nice, normal Jewish boy from Chicago will never be the same. Even without the speed she shoots to get through medical school, Jody's sexual and emotional demands would have pushed poor Rob to the suicide attempt that eventually turns him into one of her patients. Like Rob, the other men she meets cannot help but be caught and destroyed in the vortex she creates. Some flee to the relative safety of Jody's old acquaintance, Katie Murphy. Though a foul mouthed former sex phone operator, this lion tamer's daughter has come through life hopeful and intact.SOFT MANIACS traces the interwoven lives of these two women as they struggle to make their way in an erratic world they struggle to make their way in an erratic world they can't quite get a grasp on. Through sharp, vigorous prose, underlaid with a piercing wit, Maggie Estep leads us on a roller coaster tour of the underbelly of their psyches, surprising and delighting us at every turn. At once frightening and hilarious, heartbreaking and hopeful, SOFT MANIACS is an unforgettable exploration of how people find one another in an accelerated world.
