Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Elissa Schappell's USE ME is a wonderfully satisfying book, the kind of coming-of-age novel that somehow fulfills the expectations of the genre in unexpected ways. Schappell is a comic writer with impeccable timing, and USE ME is quick and entertaining.....Schappell takes a risk that is all the more startling and painful coming as it does in such an amusing book--she is uncompromising not only about what is absurd and contemptible. She is uncompromising about what is sincere." - Cathleen Schine 04/09/2000

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"[F]ull of sass and polished to a high gloss. It's also smart, honest, sexy..." 12/03/2000
