American Housewife is a collection of twelve short stories which focus on
the lives of modern American housewives, based in New York City or the South. The dark humor stories range from laugh out loud funny to snarky and twisted satire. Some of my favorites were “Hello! Welcome to Book Club,” and “How To Be A Patron of the Arts.” Helen Ellis is a talented writer, but I didn’t feel a connection to the jaded, social-climbing women in her stories.
I recommend this book for those who enjoy offbeat, social parody stories.
I received a copy of the book from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
