Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Meghan Fitzmaurice is the socialite star of the morning TV show from which the novel takes its name, a woman who knows about everything but failure. That’s how she sounds. Failure is the life’s work of social worker Bridget Fitzmaurice. And that’s how she sounds. They are sisters, and yet Carol Monda allows you to hear their differences in tone and syntax. More surprisingly, Monda is also convincing as Tequila, the black, busty, bossy secretary at Women On Women (WOW) where Bridget works. Told explosively in today’s clipped vernacular, this beautifully performed novel exhibits the attention to detail for which Charles Dickens and Edith Wharton are justly famous. It’s a cross between a thriller and a novel of manners. Or rather, it’s a thrilling novel of manners. B.H.C. 2007 Audies Award Winner © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
