Great. Light read. The characters were easy to relate to and who hasn't wanted to dissect a failed relationship with an uninvolved member of the opposite sex !

"If I have learned only one thing in my life, it is that being alone is far preferable to being with someone crazy and out-of-control," says fictional television writer Lisa Roberty in this edgy offering from Emmy-winning writer Markoe. Following the raucous It's My F---ing Birthday (2002), Markoe pairs with veteran rock singer/songwriter Prieboy for a study in two-part disharmony, in which two jaded Angelenos engage in a battle of e-mail one-upmanship to establish who has suffered more in the name of love. The trials and tribulations of writer Roberty and rock star Grant Repka are revealed in alternating "he said/she said" chapters--written by Markoe and Prieboy, respectively--that offer scathing commentary on the liabilities of modern romance. Among the "ex" files: lovers who hurl lobsters in fits of rage and abandon one another on dark, backcountry roads. Amidst remembrances of psychos past, Lisa and Grant discover truths about each other-- and themselves. Could there be love among the ions? Perhaps, but don't expect hearts and flowers from this acid-tongued team. --Allison Block, American Library Association. [NOTE: One of Markoe's ex's is Dave Letterman--could the character of Nick Blake be based on him?--NF]

So you have Letterman's ex & the 2nd singer of Wall of Voodoo (Mexican Radio) co-writing a book and you get what, exactly? A pretty entertaining, quick read.
