Rebecca Lee's book is hysterically funny. Not only that but I like her last name. :) The comedy is dark with a rapier sharp edge. One example is a drug company that donates slow moving products to charities for tax write-offs that results in diet aids being donated to starving Africans. The situations are comically bizarre such as the couple who wants her boss Peter to design a house for them based on their real-life movement patterns. This results in inviting the main character, Justine Laxness, and her boss to a field where they figure out where they'll sleep, prepare food, sit as if on a pretend sofa, and then design the house from those movements. It's silly. It's strange. It works. Justine is Peter's administrative assistant at the Aquinas Foundation in New York City and gathers large amounts of money. Their biggest project is to build the Noodle House on the Yangtze River. The Noodle House will be part hospital, part spa, and part spiritual retreat for those celebrities who can afford a private room there. Unfortunately, the Chinese government decides to expand a dam; so while Aquinas still owns the property, it'll be under water. Yes, it's silly and strange, but then fiction can sometimes be at least as strange as the truth, particularly in Rebecca Lee's world. Justine kind of falls in love with a lot of men without actually ever making it definite (physical) such as her love for a film maker James Nutter who writes a screenplay about a boy who turns into a girl whenever his emotions go into high gear. Nutter is also directing the film and spends days getting a picture of wheat or the boy's head. This results in Justine making an unofficial $300,000 loan with Aquinas' money to keep the movie going. The book has somewhat of an unresolved ending as Lee leads us to expect Justine will be indicted on money laundering charges, but leaves us before the action is fully resolved. However, maybe that wouldn't be funny; so it's better to end the book before the shoe drops. Rebecca Lee's novel is breezy to read and laugh-out-loud funny. Enjoy!
