Move over Real Housewives of Atlanta, LA, Boston, Long Island, and everywhere else. None of you have anything on the women in this demented and funny collection of short stories. Here we find the perfect stay-at-home moms and wives who are always able to keep their hair coiffed, their book clubs ruled, and ever remain “grown ass” ladies—albeit while dumpster diving or engaging in a passive-aggressive war that morphs into something the military might consider as training. The humor is dark and twisted, probably like the martinis these women like to drink.
