9780099476665: The Thing about Jane Spring

Jane Spring has discovered that twenty-first-century relationships are built on a myth. She's organized, attractive, strong-minded and self-sufficient - yet she's single. She's smart, ambitious and sexually confident - yet somehow, while all her friends plan their weddings, no-one wants to marry her. Then one day she finds the answer. Drinking her way through a depressing afternoon snowed into her apartment, she turns on the TV and finds a Doris Day marathon. And that's when the revelation hits her: Doris wouldn't be stuck inside alone at a weekend. Doris wouldn't scare men off. Doris always gets her man. Because despite everything men say, they're terrified of women like Jane. What they really want is a cute little blonde with frosted pink lipstick, tight pencil skirts and kitten heels. What they really want is Doris. And so Jane Spring sets out to reinvent herself. If that's what men want, that's what she'll give them...

From the Inside Flap:

"Here's the thing about Sharon Krum: she knows how to make you laugh, and she'll do so relentlessly. THE THING ABOUT JANE SPRING isn't just about one woman's search for true love; it's a paean to a world straddling the border between fairy tales and feminism, where Doris Day and Cary Grant spend their days arguing legal matters and their nights nuzzling over pillow talk. Jane Spring is a character perfectly suited to our modern times: she's tough yet tender, abrasive yet sensitive, completely confused about her life's direction, and endlessly entertaining."
-- Eric Garcia, author of Cassandra French's Finishing School for Boys and Matchstick Men
