Neurotica is a hilariously funny novel about tabloid journalist Anna Shapiro who is assigned to write an article about female adultery. This seems like the perfect assignment for Anna who decides to do a little hands on research after years of having her husband Dan, who is a hypochondriac, refusing to have sex with her for fear that he may have a heart attack. Anna's exploits are so funny that they will have you laughing out loud but even funnier is Dan's fear of...well everything from testicular cancer to spontaneous human combustion. These two paired with Anna's mother who is being stalked by a fellow obsessive compulsive group member and Anna's best friend Brenda who is by Anna's side through it all while getting into a little trouble of her own makes for a very amusing read.
I haven't read a whole lot of British humor but after reading Neurotica I will definitely be reading much, much more. If you want an easy and entertaining read this is the book for you! 4 Stars!
