Publisher's Summary

Modern stories for modern times, Crash Diet is at once brilliant and bitter, happy and heartbreaking. In 11 stories, acclaimed novelist Jill McCorkle tells the varied tales of today's southern women, the lives they end up leading, and the loves that distract them. Sandra knows that the best revenge is her ex-husband's credit card; Ruthie is stuck owning a motel that the highway has bypassed; Anna is a widow who goes to airports and looks in on other people's lives; Bunny waits eagerly for her absent sister's postcards for advice on how to live.

Stuck in the slow lane, gunning their motors, they are women living the real life, hoping things will get better, but surprised when they occasionally do.

Funniest "Dirty,Cheating, Husband" Story EVER!!

I read the first short story in the book about 9 years ago. It remains the funniest piece of fiction I have ever read. In fact, I'm lauging thinking about it right now.

This is a "dirty rotten cheating husband" story. It explodes as our heroine learns her husband is leaving her for another woman, and proceeds with a continual string of insane antics for the purpose of getting revenge on her ex. She justs takes a mini break from sanity and indulges herself in hilarious wild romps meant to humiliate and financially ruin her ex husband. However,the process eventually rewards her with the return of her self esteem,dignity, and inner strength.

The other stories are very good also, and the narration is excellent.
