Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307951820, Hardcover)An inventive debut that recalls the imagination of Aimee Bender and the sardonic wit of Lorrie Moore.
The interlocking stories in The Kissing List feature an unforgettable group of young women – Sylvie, Anna, Frances, Maureen – as their lives connect, first during a year abroad at Oxford, then later as they move to New York on the cusp of adulthood. We follow each of them as they navigate the treachery of first dates, temp jobs and roommates, failed relationships and unexpected affairs – all the things that make their lives seem full of possibility, but also rife with potential disappointment.
Shot through with laugh-out-loud lines, yet still wrenchingly emotional and resonant, The Kissing List is a book about women who bravely defy expectations and take outrageous chances in the face of a life that might turn out to be anything less than extraordinary.

"A bold, inventive, and slyly witty work of debut fiction about life and love in your twenties When Sylvie moves to New York at the age of twenty-three, all she can think about is kissing. Who is kissing whom, she wonders, and are they doing more than kissing, and when she meets the right guy, is a kiss just a kiss, or could it lead to something more? As Sylvie and her friends navigate the treacherous world of their twenties, more men are added to their kissing lists - the porn star, the pseudo-intellectual, the creepy boss, the animal rights activist. But which kiss will be the one to ultimately change their lives? With sardonic humor and unexpected emotional force, THE KISSING LIST follows a group of women who take outrageous chances in life and love, and merrily defy the expectations of parents and friends - perfectly capturing that harrowing and thrilling decade in life when just about anything seems possible"--
