Review:

Tasha, the anti-heroine of Jane Green's Straight Talking, is sassy, sexy and out for all she can get, or so she would have you believe. Straight Talking aims its arrows of truth directly at you, as its narrator, Tasha, openly discusses issues as if you were part of the world on the page and could answer back. The book is a no-holds-barred, frank take on sex, friendship and relationships for the single thirtysomething. A ladette in her 20s, sleeping around happily with a series of men, Tasha begins to retrench in her 30s and it becomes all-out open warfare to capture a man.

Will she fall for the suave, arrogant Andrew, who has females falling at his feet? Or will she fall back into a relationship with her treacherous ex-boyfriend, Simon? Or will she come to lean on nice, but not terribly sexy, Adam? Green's/Tasha's style is irreverent and self-deprecating as she points the finger at the clichés of singledom: "Of course I have cats. What self-respecting single career woman of 30 who's secretly desperately longing to give it all up for the tall, rich stranger of her dreams doesn't have cats?" She has a keen eye and a cutting tongue, which sustains the action and pace of this sharply observed and witty first novel. --Nicola Perry

Review:

"Any woman who's suffered a relationship trauma, or simply lost her way in the confusion of modern life, will "die" for this book . . . Wickedly funny, it may not improve your love life, but it "will" make you squeal with laughter." --"Cosmopolitan" "Irritatingly accurate, "Straight Talking" is a hilarious and poignant look at love and sex." --"Elle" "Sharp, funny, and packed with familiar situations for all those who've ever embarked on the dating game." --"Tattler"
