It is temping at first but unwise to assume Candace Shapiro is yet another Bridget Jones. Feisty, funny and less self-hating than her predecessor, Cannie is a 28-year-old Philadelphia Examiner reporter preoccupied with her weight and men, but able to see the humor in even the most unpleasant of life's broadsides. Even she is floored, however, when she reads "Good in Bed," a new women's magazine column penned by her ex-boyfriend, pothead grad student Bruce Guberman. Three months earlier, Cannie suggested they take a break apparently, Bruce thought they were through and set about making such proclamations as, "Loving a larger woman is an act of courage in our world." Devastated by this public humiliation, Cannie takes comfort in tequila and her beloved dog, Nifkin. Bruce has let her down like another man in her life: Cannie's sadistic, plastic surgeon father emotionally abused her as a young girl, and eventually abandoned his wife and family, leaving no forwarding address. Cannie's siblings suffer, especially the youngest, Lucy, who has tried everything from phone sex to striptease. Their tough-as-nails mother managed to find love again with a woman, Tanya, the gravel-voiced owner of a two-ton loom. Somehow, Cannie stays strong for family and friends, joining a weight-loss group, selling her screenplay and gaining the maturity to ask for help when she faces something bigger than her fears. Weiner's witty, original, fast-moving debut features a lovable heroine, a solid cast, snappy dialogue and a poignant take on life's priorities. This is a must-read for any woman who struggles with body image, or for anyone who cares about someone who does. Cahners Business Information

Book Description Ediciones Urano, Spain, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Translation. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. A los 28 años, Cannie Shapiro cree que su vida ha sido razonablemente feliz. Es una periodista de reconocido talento, a quien sus amigos consideran divertida e independiente. Quizá demasiado agobiada por sus eternos problemas de peso y los constantes conflictos con los hombres, está siempre dispuesta a ver el lado cómico de las cosas y es capaz de reaccionar con ironía frente a las situaciones más difíciles. Ese sentido del humor le permite aceptar con filosofía la separación temporal que, después de tres años de relación, le propone su novio Bruce. Pero cuando ojea la revista femenina de moda y descubre un texto firmado por su anterior pareja, se siente destrozada por un artículo que considera una humillación pública. En su artículo, Bruce no solamente describe con todo detalle aspectos muy íntimos de su vida sexual, también se refiere claramente a las inseguridades de Cannie y a su constante batalla contra la báscula. Herida y con la autoestima por los suelos, buscará consuelo en la ginebra y refugio en el afecto inquebrantable de su perro Nifkin. Pero Niflkin sólo puede ladrar para consolarle y las consecuencias de la ginebra no son lo que se dice muy recomendables. Así que Cannie decidirá que ha llegado el momento de dar un giro a su vida. ¿Hacia dónde? Cuando una chica como Cannie se propone cambiar, las consecuencias son siempre imprevisibles. Una historia original, ágil y divertida. Una lectura obligada para las mujeres que están preocupadas por conseguir la silueta ideal o conocen a alguien que lo está. Publishers Weekly.
