Publisher's Summary

Cannie Shapiro never wanted to be famous. The smart, sharp, plus-sized pop culture reporter was perfectly content writitng about other people's lives in the pages of the Philadlphia Examiner. But the day she opened up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever.

Loving a larger woman is an act of courage in our world, Bruce has written. And Cannie - who never knew that Bruce saw her as a larger woman, or thought that loving her was an act of courage - is plunged into misery, and into the most amazing year of her life.

Radiant with wit, bursting with surprises, and written with bite and bittersweet humor, Jennifer Weiner reaches beyond Cannie's story and into the heart of every woman. Gut-level real and laugh-out-loud funny, Good in Bed celebrates the courage of the human spirit and features an unbelievably funny cast of supporting characters, the strangest dog you'll ever encounter, and a heroine you'll never forget.

©2001 Jennifer Weiner (P)2012 Simon & Schuster

What the Critics Say

"Funny, zippy, and unflinchingly honest, Good In Bed is a powerhouse debut for Jennifer Weiner. I consumed this extra-large portion of a book in one sitting, rooting for Cannie the heroine and willing horrible atrocities on her ex-boyfriend. Some big surprises kept the pages flying; I grinned the whole way through. Good In Bed can only be described as deeply satisfying." (Valerie Frankel Author of Smart vs. Pretty)

"[Good in Bed's] Cannie emerges as one of the most engaging realistic female characters in years...Weiner's smoothly written novel is stuffed with dialogue that rings with humor and truth." (Entertainment Weekly)

    Story
    "I thoroughly enjoyed this one"

    Hard to put down. The book conjures up feelings we have all had at one time or other. Our insecurities, our families, our view of the world, not sugar coated. At the same time it's funny and honest. Not my typical genre but so glad I picked it up.

    Story
    "Triumphant"

    I loved this story from beginning to end. More than a love story by far. It is a story of a woman who triumphs over all and falls in love in the end. I laughed out loud, cried tears of sorrow and felt - at times - that I was experiencing déjà vu... As a "big boned girl" I also learned that I don't fit in this world from a very young age. This story, and Canny's journey to self acceptance and self love felt like the beginning of my journey to do the same. I am inspired by her. Thank you Jennifer - what a wonderful web you wove.

    Story
    "Very Pleasanty Surpised"
    If you could sum up Good in Bed in three words, what would they be?

    My first Jennifer Weiner book and now I am hooked. Its not your regular romance book Not predictable at all. I found my self sobbing, gasping or laughing out loud at certain points. Couldn't stop listening. Can't wait for my next boo


    What does Laura Hicks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She really has the gift, loved the narrative.

    "Joyful"

    Jennifer's depiction of Canny's happiness, sadness, abandonment and life struggles kept me up listening. And in the end, abounding in triumph!

    Story
    "Good Premise"

    The concept for the book was great. Love the person you are in the body you are given. The story seemed to really drag on about the Bruce thing, come on Cany. ..let it go already. Overall, it was a nice light read.

    "Really slow"

    I'm sorry but this story just moved really slow for me. I felt like it could have been about half the length. It was a decent read but just didn't grab me.

    "Wow, so much going on here"

    From abandonment issues with a father, to one's mother dating women, to your ex publicly embarrassing you, to weight issues, to randomly meeting and be-friending famous people, to the idea of accidental pregnancy and making tough choices, this book covers A LOT of ground.
