Inhaltsangabe: A smart, deeply satisfying romantic comedy about a woman's obsession with the return of her fiancé's ex.

On the Delta Shuttle between New York and Washington, Elise finds herself sitting next to Donald?tall, with dark wavy hair, a big easy smile. She?s left the world of women's magazines in Manhattan for graduate school in D.C. He?s left investment banking to become a teacher. They are both unattached. They exchange stories. They fall in love. One year later they?re headed for an April wedding. Storybook finish? Not quite.

Donald has some serious baggage: an ex-fiancée named Adrienne. And she's not just any ex: she is "the mother of all exes." Yale educated, French extraction, ravishing, and she's just shown up in D.C. Adrienne is Elise's worst nightmare incarnate--and before too long her all-consuming obsession. Every man comes with baggage. But did it have to be her?

Rezension: The problem with most of the post-Bridget Jones fiction is that the dithering heroines tend to inspire impatience rather than sympathy, but in the novel Her, Laura Zigman skillfully avoids that common pitfall. Elise is engaged to be married to Donald. Displaced New Yorkers living in Washington, D.C., they bond over the foibles of life in the capital: pundits at the grocery store, power brokers at the baggage claim. Donald seems a truly amiable fellow, a fine fictional creation worth fighting over. Enter the titular her, Donald's ex-girlfriend Adrienne, a dark beauty who's catty and gracefully catlike all at once. When Adrienne relocates from New York to D.C., Elise fights a pitched battle over the hapless Donald, who of course has no idea of the warfare on his behalf. Unfortunately, Elise can be so insecure and jealous that the reader guiltily begins to root for Adrienne--at least she's got a little self-respect. Such is the power of romantic formula, however, that when it all comes right for Donald and Elise, we close the book with a satisfied feeling. --Claire Dederer
