Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him (Inglés) Tapa blanda – may 2008
Descripción del producto
"Funny, sharp-clawed."--New York Times"Enjoyably tart... Ganek's portraits of the variously sneaky, ridiculous and pretentious art world denizens are tinged with affection and depth. The tone is sophisticated chick lit, and there's a sweet love story threaded in, but what most clearly animates this debut, and sets it apart, is a real sense that art matters."--Publishers Weekly "Ganek offers a witty, intelligent look at a rarefied world for which most of us will never have the necessary entrance fee, and Mia, a would-be artist with bigger dreams than talent, makes a charming tour guide."--Christian Science Monitor "A debut that reads like an amusing fairy tale as it offers a view into a world few readers are likely to have experienced."--Booklist

brainless romance novel, a breezy summer read, but in truth it is the iron fist in the velvet glove. Obviously the authoress has intimate insider knowledge of the NY art scene and has a lot of axes to grind....so she has cleverly adopted this cream puff, witless ingenue heroine to tell her story while back-stabbing everyone in the room. The major dealers in the NYC art scene will probably recognize themselves here. It's a wonder the authoress wasn't sued for libel. At times she drops her guard (who, moi?) and lets her true self come out with comments like: Art Is The New Cocaine. Loved this juicy, informative book.
The premise for the novel has potential (that's why it gets three starts), but is just so poorly executed. The novel is told in the present tense, even though most of it is technically in the past. Description is used in excess and there is a certain cheesiness factor at times (A checklist quiz of where they should go on their dinner date? White flowers spread throughout a bedroom because that color seems to fit her? Please...) I was disappointed with the "chick-lit" feel of the novel, since I really hadn't anticipated it would turn out that way. Definitely not one I'd recommend.
I loved getting an inside glimpse of the art world. Mia is a wonderful self depriciating character who manages to cheer for a woman who is accomplishing "her" dreams while Mia is not. Many times I found the story and the writing quite engaging and snappy. Ganek wove in great character points throughout the story. Very consistent and smart.
If the reader is looking for high drama, trashy sex, blood and guts, this is not the book. If the reader is looking for an engaging, interesting tale of the NY art scene told by solid characters with a fun love story, this is the book.
Mia is a classy American Bridget Jones.
Well done, Ms. Ganek!
