American Girls About Town

Smart, sassy and sharp enough to cut themselves
In this breathtaking collection of brilliant, brand-new stories, some of America's best-known women writers have joined forces with up-and-coming new stars to raise money for a very good cause.
A backpacking adventure in Vietnam veers wildly off-course for one intrepid American traveller. A single mother sets herself a bizarre personal challenge as her fortieth birthday looms. A female commitment-phobe must find a cure for her fatal two-month ich -- and fast!
All this and much, much more in a delectable collection of stories which proves -- if proof were needed -- that no one can deliver a devastating one-liner quite like an Amerian girl.
