Martin's "New York Times" bestselling novella--the basis for his critically acclaimed motion picture now available on DVD--is a story of modern-day love and romance told with disarming tenderness. Now in mass-market paperback for the first time.
From the Publisher:
Working as a salesgirl at the Beverly Hills Neiman Marcus, Mirabelle, a beautiful aspiring artist, embarks on a love affair with Ray Porter, a wealthy, lonely businessman she meets at the store, and together they struggle to understand the meaning of love, in a bittersweet tale of romance. A first novel. Reprint.
Annotation:
Humorist and actor Steve Martin writes a novel about Mirabelle, who works at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills. A lonely businessman falls for her, and Martin charts the rocky progress of their relationship with insight, compassion, and perfect comic timing.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"[This] elegant, bleak, desolatingly sad first novella is in every sense [Martin's] most serious work to date....from the days of the Wild and Crazy Guy onward, Martin's humor has always been about people who do not realize they are absurd. In SHOPGIRL that sense of absurdity is larger and more encompassing--something closer to an existentialist idea of the absurd, of life as defined by a tragicomic absence of purpose." - John Lanchester 10/29/2000

Times Literary Supplement
"[A] witty, well-written and intelligent novella; its portrait of the strange moral values of Hollywood, however, raises some uncomfortable questions about the author's views on a number of issues ranging from women to happiness." - Aisling Foster 11/24/2000
