Annotation In this comic novel, Michael and Eve get engaged--and all hell breaks loose as the wedding takes over their lives. Eve's anxieties include the demands of Modern Bride magazine, the inevitable fights, the proliferating details, and a sneaking suspicion that she's made a terrible mistake.
Editors Note In a humorous take on the institution of modern marriage, Eve struggles to cope with life after the man of her dreams pops the question, as she deals with setting the date for the wedding, finding a dress, and planning the wedding, as a once sensible woman is transformed into a "bride-to-be." Reprint.
Editors Note 3 In a humorous take on the institution of modern marriage, Eve struggles to cope with life after the man of her dreams pops the question, as she deals with setting the date for the wedding, finding a dress, and planning the wedding, as a once sensible woman is transformed into a "bride-to-be." Reprint. 50,000 first printing.
Editors Note 4 In a humorous take on the institution of modern marriage, Eve struggles to cope with life after the man of her dreams pops the question, as she deals with planning the wedding and is transformed from a sensible woman into a "bride-to-be."
Editors Note 5 Otherwise Engaged is Suzanne Finnamore's wickedly funny account of an intelligent, rational woman's transformation into the harpy of anxieties that is the bride-to-be.When Michael pops the question, Eve is deliriously happy. She tells grocery clerks. She subscribes to bridal magazines. She delights in the rainbows that shower from the one-carat (okay, .81-carat) ring on her hand. For two days. As the cumulative stresses of ordering invitations, finding a dress, and organizing the Perfect Honeymoon fry Eve's nerves, the very real prospect of being with one man for the rest of her days reverberates through her consciousness like a Chinese gong. Suddenly the sight of Michael's discarded socks on the floor and his passing mentions of his former live-in French girlfriend incite doubt, argument, and public fainting.Uproarious, insightful, tender, Otherwise Engaged dashes our soap-bubble fantasies in favor of a hilariously realistic walk to the alter.
