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!

Very rude. Very funny. Margolis has created a fabulous side-splitting romp - a kind of Jewish version of Kathy Lette's Foetal Attraction. But much, much funnier. And you don't have to know what kefilta fish is to to appreciate the humour.

Bloody funny! I haven't laughed so much in ages. Margolis' darkly subversive humour is delicious. The story is populated with the kind of crazy freaks you are sure you've met somewhere. This is "must-have" holiday reading - even for a Gentile!

A sexy gripping love story, in which a woman discovers herself and the things she values, and meanwhile has a lot of fun, some horrible time and lots of sex. Just loved it!!!! can't wait for Margolis to write another novel.

many moons ago when my then boyfriend moved in with me, i commented on how funny this book was! thinking he was being kind he feigned interest and began perusing the pages. suffice to say i couldn't get a word out of him for 2 days, and all i heard was the occasional sound of crazed laughter! i have to say i forgavwe him as this is one and only book that has had me laughing out loud at regular intervals. i'm usually put off by what appears to be pulp fiction, but this really is the exception. If you like Joan rivers caustic wit then this is the book for you! don't miss it!

This was one of the funniest books I have ever read. It made me laugh outloud at some of the ridiculous but very possible situations that the main character got into. A breath of fresh air from some of the predictable trash around.

I read on average three books per week from autobiography to the ridiculous. This book had me gripped from start to finish. Housework? Phone ringing? What is that!!! I was oblivious! The funniest book I have ever read.
