    DescriptionHarriet has left her boyfriend Claude, "the French rat." At least that is how she prefers to frame the matter. In fact, after yet one more argument, Claude has just instructed Harriet to move out of his Greenwich Village apartment-not that she has any intention of doing so. To the contrary, she will stay and exact her vengeance-or such was her intention until Claude has her unceremoniously evicted. Still, though moved out, Harriet is not about to move on. Not in any way. Girlfriends circle around to give advice, but Harriet only takes offense, and you can see why. Because mad and maddening as she may be, Harriet sees past the polite platitudes that everyone else is content to spout and live by. She is an unblinkered, unbuttoned, unrelenting, and above all bitingly funny prophetess of all that is wrong with women's lives and hearts-until, in a surprise twist, she finds a savior in a dark room at the Chelsea Hotel.

    Review quote
    Some of the withering put-downs, observations and asides are as beautiful as they are brutal. Best of all, it's very funny; as long as your taste in humour is on the savage side. Tribune
