At first my eyes wouldn't make sense of the letters. Finally, they unscrambled. Loving a Larger Woman, said the headline, by Bruce Guberman. Bruce Guberman had been my boyfriend for just over three years, until we'd decided to take a break three months ago. And the larger woman, I could only assume, was me.
Cannie Shapiro never wanted to be famous. The smart, sharp, plus-sized pop culture reporter was perfectly content writitng about other people's lives on 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 the ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever.
Loving a larger woman is and 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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley | 1/26/2014

    " Definitely a book that made me laugh out loud. Jennifer Weiner's writing style makes you think you are having a glass of wine with a girlfriend. Loved the main character Cannie and her ability to dust herself off despite having been humiliated, beaten down and ran over by life. I've read other Jennifer Weiner novels since but this one was definitely my favorite. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alie | 9/22/2012

    " Started out funny and light and ended up depressing. Lots of daddy issues and eat your feelings from the main character. Might read another book by the author if it was a lighter tone. "

    " Weiner proved her­self once again to me. She really knows how to write humoristic chick-­lit with the hard real­ity woven through. You will laugh, you will cry, but most of all, you will not be able to put the book down once you started. Three times hooray for Jen­nifer Weiner. "
