Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of You Think It, I'll Say It by Curtis Sittenfeld, read by Emily Rankin and Mark Deakins.

In 'The World Has Many Butterflies', a married woman flirts with a man she meets at parties by playing 'You think it, I’ll say it', putting into words the bitchy things she guesses he's thinking about their fellow guests. But she is in for a shock when, in time, she finds out what was really in his mind. ‘The Nominee’ sees Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail, confessing her surprising true feelings about a woman journalist she has sparred with over the years. In ‘Gender Studies’, a visiting academic sleeps with her taxi driver for what turns out to be all the wrong reasons. 

The theme that unites these stories in this dazzling first collection by Curtis Sittenfeld is how even the cleverest people tend to misread others and how much we all deceive ourselves. Sharp and tender, funny and wise, this collection shows Sittenfeld’s knack for creating real, believable characters while also skewering contemporary mores with brilliant dry wit.

Dull

My wife tried the book and quickly gave up! I tried it and persevered, but I too gave up on it!
We both found it very, very, dull!
