THE HUSBAND HABIT is Generation X’s princess story of fame, love, and fortune. Beautiful Vanessa overcomes childhood traumas, earns a graduate degree in literature from Yale, and returns home to New Mexico, where she's considered a genius chef. Amid all this overachievement she has one foible: She repeatedly falls in love with married men. It’s all because she grew up with combative alcoholic parents, says Paul, her new love, muscular and supposedly single. Eve Bianco flawlessly narrates the author’s buoyant prose. Effortlessly Bianco portrays Vanessa’s youthful naïveté and emphatic opposition to the Iraq war, where Paul served as an interrogator and fighter pilot. This production is a perfect stress reliever, with tantalizing recipes as a bonus. K.P. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
