Rebecca Bloomwood shops. She knows prices at stores all over London and way overspends her lines of credit. When bill collectors come calling, she hides, inventing lies, excuses, and evasions until the inevitable happens. Emily Gray captures Becky's addiction and optimistic denial with compassion and insight. She also drives us crazy with the stupidity of Becky's actions. The shopaholic's friends, family, and love interests receive thoughtful consideration under Gray's care, each carrying a distinct voice, none overdone. Gray's change in tone as Rebecca comes to grips with the effects of her actions on others, and her growing awareness of her own worth, closes the account on exactly the right note. R.P.L.
