Welcome to the delightful array of smart and sassy women who valiantly -- and hilariously -- struggle with the eternal battle of the sexes in this gutsy collection of stories.

Child brides, misguided newlyweds, and lusty middle-aged grandmothers are just a few of the characters Abigail Thomas brings to life in these wise and witty stories about women of all ages trying to deal with love for men, with their families, and with their own lot in life. Thomas presents interesting heroines: there's the girl in "Sisters" who hates her younger sibling for (among other things) her precise memory. In "Seeing Things," Maude, who "wants to be tan the whole year round," and whose "great ambition is to be whistled at on the street," is told by her younger sister, "You look ridiculous smoking with the chicken pox." And then there are the four stories about Buddy and Virginia, who have to drop out of school and get married after she gets pregnant. From sibling rivalry to marital strife, Thomas uncovers the pain, the poignancy, and the belief in love that lie in the hearts of her heroines.

So far, I'm not loving this book. It's a little disjointed for my taste. I am a fan of this author, but not this book. Maybe it's just me.

Utterly engaging from the first page. Creative characters, funny, unpredictable endings. Definitely recommend.

I really enjoyed AThree Dog Life, it was like a conversation with a good friend (albeit one sided). However with Getting Over Tom I didn't find the character interesting.

I read about this book in a magazine when it was published. I liked the catchy title so I went out and bought it. When I got it home I immediately began reading the book and couldn't put it down. The book reveals emotions that I could relate to which kept me reading more. I have re-read this book three times and have encouraged my friends to also read it. Once you start the book, you can't put it down!

Some of the stories are good.

happened upon this book and loved the stories!! I will hang on to it and read again, lend out to friends, etc.... Best short stories I've come across since Cowboys are My Weakness (Pam Houston) and This is How you Lose Her (Junot Diaz)!
I really, really liked this book. Is it great literature? No, but it's one heck of a fast read and hard to put down. As a rule, I'm not crazy about the short story category but I found this one addicting. I found myself wishing I could meet some of the characters.
