I have never read any of Kidd's other works, but I have been aware of her. When I saw the title The Mermaid Chair, I was intrigued. The plot synopsis sounded promising, so I decided to take a chance...Now I wish I had my book credit back!
The main character is positively drowning in ennui. There isn't much I dislike more than a person with position, privelege, and love who is too self-absorbed to embrace their fortune and live beautifully. Listen to the audio clip, read an excerpt on amazon.com before you use your credit on this narcissistic tale.
