I sort of started this book, even though I am still reading another; I generally don’t do this…
I came across this in a book sale a few weeks ago; I didn’t even know that Steve Martin had written a novel, in fact he has written two. The second one one is called The Pleasure of My Company.
Synopsis for Shopgirl:
THE BESTSELLING NOVEL BY STEVE MARTIN IS NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE Mirabelle is the “shopgirl” of the title, a young woman, beautiful in a wallflowerish kind of way, who works behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus “selling things that nobody buys anymore…” Mirabelle captures the attention of Ray Porter, a wealthy businessman almost twice her age. As they tentatively embark on a relationship, they struggle to decipher the language of love–with consequences that are both comic and heartbreaking. Filled with the kind of witty, discerning observations that have brought Steve Martin critical success, “Shopgirl” is a work of disarming tenderness.
