** American Housewife by Helen Ellis

American Housewife brings together stories of women who should probably find something meaningful to focus on instead of destroying their neighbors about foyer decor, say.  All the heroines (and therefore all the stories) are quite strange, and some were just not for me. My favorite was one about a male bra fitter and his assistant-wife who needs to contend with his overly adoring clients, and was hilarious. Others, not so much.
