You are a failed novelist about to turn 50. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: Your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes - it would be too awkward - and you can't say no - it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world. Question: How do you arrange to skip town? Answer: You accept them all.

Fun, easy to listen to book, with many laughing moments. Loved the ending and was surprised by the identity of the narrator. Positive notes throughout most of the book.

The plot sparked and maintained my interest throughout most of the book. It was an easy, convenient listen on my bus commute. Did not like the fact that the story is from the perspective of a character that I found boring and/or annoying (oblivious, dumb) for the most part. Did not enjoy listening to her thoughts.
