You will be pleased to know that Linda devoured Stripah Love in a few sittings, and LOVED it. She thought it was very funny and a little twisted. She said it reminded her of Carl Hiassen. Not sure if you like the comparison- she hates it when she gets compared to Linda Ronstadt, or worse, Janis Joplin.
I'm planning to read it, and I'm looking forward to it. Linda can't wait for the movie!
