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 writing about other people's lives on the pages of the Philadelphia Examiner. But the day she opens up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever.

Loving a larger woman is an 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's deliciously readable debut novel 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.

    " A first novel by a talented new author who reminds me a little of Anne Tyler and John Irving. The protagonist is a full figured young woman who is publicly humiliated by her ex-boyfriend in a magazine article. From that point on life begins to happen to her in some convoluted, unexpected and frequently hilrious twists. "

    " This book surprised me. I picked it up as a quick, fluffy read - expecting nothing - and initially had a hard time getting into it, but was quickly won over by Cannie's strength, wit, and authenticity.. I guess it is the first in a series? I would read the rest. I liked Cannie and wouldn't mind spending more time with her adventures. : ) "
