Review

Girls’ Night In
Lauren Henderson, Chris Manby, and Sarah Mlynowski (editors)
Red Dress, Sep 2004, $13.95, 336 pp.
ISBN: 0373250746

This twenty-one chick lit anthology is a sub-genre’s dream as all the tales are well-written and cross the full gamut of topics from breaking up is hard to do to making up is more fun for two, etc. The locations vary from the office to the home, etc. The authors are a who’s who with many successes on their résumés. There is even the return of heroes from previous novels.

This reviewer never expected to appreciate a chick lit compilation, but it seems as if the sub-genre is intended for short stories as the fit is perfect. Each tale provides enough insight into the lead protagonist so that the audience obtains strong characters dealing with life’s foibles. Finally, as an added incentive earnings will go to War Child, a not for profit organization trying to help young victims of war. Readers will spend several delightful nights in appreciating this fine collection, demand Red Dress follow up with similar tales (such as BIG NIGHT OUT) while supporting the book’s worthy cause.
