Beautiful Bodies Summary

Beautiful Bodies by Laura Shaine Cunningham

It's Manhattan, on the coldest night of the year and six best friends are rushing to celebrate a festive evening...Jessie, the hostess, is late for her own party. Sue Carol, a professional 'wacktress' (waitress/actress) has left her unfaithful husband. Lisbeth, an ex-Vogue model, is battling her landlord. Nina, the spa owner is fleeing a vegetarian with 'a weird sexual organ'. They are all eager to see the guest of honour, Claire, who vanished after becoming pregnant by a glorious one night stand. Is she misguided or inspired? The debate rages. How can modern working women triumph in such trying times? While the mobile phones chime and the biological clocks tick ever onwards, the friends enact a timeless ceremony. Witty, perceptive and thoroughly entertaining "Beautiful Bodies" is a dazzling comedy of manners.

Beautiful Bodies Reviews

'Wonderfully entertaining ... and wise ... her smart, unpretentious characters not only exercise their sexual freedom but also confront the complicated questions that come with it ... a generous and gifted writer' New York Times Book Review 'Reading it makes one want to shower Cunningham with kisses - it's a true novel of the city ... this novel really is luminous and dark, funny and sad, airy and filled with meaning' New York Observer 'BEAUTIFUL BODIES is too exquisitely written for the reader to break away for an interval' Daily Telegraph 'Both a marvellous exploration of being female, single and a New Yorker, and an antidote to the shiny, Jimmy Choo, world of Carrie Bradshaw ... it's so darned readable' Image
