June 18th, 2008 - Deirdre on reading, writing and living

Jun. 18th, 2008 08:26 pm Book #21: Fountain of Marvelous, by Valerie Fausone

In an era where every new television drama is overflowing with cops and doctors or worse, contestants exploiting one another to get rich or get famous, Fountain of Marvelous is an oasis.

Fausone is just like us, another working-class person coping with all of the insanity that comes her way. Trust me, there is plenty of insanity to go around. Be it the Oscar Mayer Wiener-mobile (who wouldn't want a chance to drive that thing) or how to prepare yourself for having a dog (pre-trash your living space so the dog won't have to) or having to deal with (ugh) germs at the local Target, Fausone has an opinion about everything.

The every-day is something best dealt with by a sardonic wit and a big feces detector, two things very much in evidence in this humorous tome.
