What’s the point of doing time in the Girl Scouts if you can’t later burn your troop leader and all those awful cookies you baked in a (Girl Scout regulation) bonfire? Making audiences smile and delivering the funny are her consuming passion, but when Abigail finds herself left standing at the altar on her wedding day, she’s hardly laughing. But soon she will, as under the stage lights and in front of a microphone- with emotional sustenance provided by a psychic, a dress and a polar bear- she wittily exacts her revenge. But be careful what you wish for….
he Doctor Will See You Now is a romantic comedy starring one comedienne, two lovers, three partners in crime, told in four acts, across five cities. In other words, “Paging Dr Freud. Dr Freud please come to reception.…”
The Thing About Jane Spring
Viking/UK. Century /UK, Urano/Spain/Mondadori/Italy, Amphora/Russia,btb, Droemer/Germany, Woojin (Novelmine)/Korea.
At thirty-one, Jane Spring has everything a woman could ask for and seemingly everything a man could long for—great legs, brains, rising star status in the Manhattan D.A.’s office—but she just can’t find a man who’ll fall madly in love with her. Men are always lining up to ask her out, but for some reason no one wants a second date.
So Jane resolves to change her tack. One snowy night while watching a Doris Day marathon on cable it hits her: Doris Day always got her man. Trading her nondescript black pantsuit for petal pink Chanel and pearls, Jane dyes her hair, stops cursing, softens her voice, paints her nails— even her apartment—and embarks on a fun-filled journey to find the smart, sweet, gorgeous, capable, ambitious, courageous, loving, adoring, hardworking man of her dreams.
