"Ellman's use of visuals and wordplay, as well as her comic sensibility, is very much a matter of taste, though her tone strongly implies that the readers who don't get her are merely plebeians anyway."
Another self-consciously erudite comedy from Ellmann (Doctors and Nurses
, 2006, etc.), this time a romance about a plastic surgeon whose love for a good woman helps him take stock.
