Pen Pals Author:Olivia Goldsmith The master of the witty women's novel returns with the story of a Wall Street whiz who naively agrees to take the fall for her boss's SEC violations...and to her surprise, winds up trading in her Armani suit for an orange jumpsuit. But soon, Jennifer's banding together with a group of cellmates to turn things around...both inside and... more » outside the prison walls.« less
From the Best Selling Author of The First Wives Club and Compromising Positions (both made into very good films), as well as the less well known but insightful Switcheroo, and the cutely absurd Marrying Mom. In this one, a young lawyer takes the heat for her scummy boss and her boyfriend and only learns once she's in jail for their crimes that they set her up....in Goldsmith's world the women never get mad - they get EVEN!
Just reading this most excellent novel made me sad all over again that Miss Goldsmith died and will never produce another novel like this---that can make you laugh and get mad and teach you at the same time. This was the third or fourth time I read this book----I find the Goldsmith novels stand up to re-reads very well!
