Excellent story lines and great rememberable characters. Such a great read. View 2 comments. It's safe to say that without Joyce Elbert, Candace Bushnell wouldn't exist. And Elbert is funny. Deeply, deeply funny. Particularly in the exchanges between Simone, French transplant, It-Girl, and devil-may-care mapcap, and her best frenemy, Anita, a stewardess emphatically NOT a flight attendent who wants nothing more than to have a ring on her finger. Elbert revisited her heroines fifteen years later in "The Return of the Crazy Ladies," also definitely worth checking out.

The people you meet in this book "The Crazy Ladies is a sometimes sad, often hilarious, always compelling novel of four attractive girls trying to make it in the toughest town in the world. The people you meet in this book are empty-headed, selfish, self-seeking hedonists. They are as faceless and as characterless as the partygoers in The Great Gatsby.
They are the stars of any of B-grade movies - the kind that get shown at 2 am when most people are asleep. The kind that you watch and feel completely brain-dead afterwards. Not only are the characters so awful, but the style of writing is shocking. If the book had been written in first person, like The Fault In Our Stars, the literary style - incredibly informal - would have been acceptable.
But this is written as a narrative. If you plan to read this book because it happens to be on your bookshelf - as it was on mine - do yourself a favour. There are no redeeming qualities to this book - it was an utter waste of time. May 10, carl theaker rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. As a something guy I was looking for something racy to read, which is what literary something guys do, and using the time honored male method of judging a book its cover I found 'Crazy Ladies', which turned out to be a good read, NO, not just for 'those' parts, of which I'm happy to say there were plenty, mmm, of which I'm sure I reread a few times.
I see from the listings that there is a 'Return of the Crazy Ladies'. Might have to see what they've been up to. Jun 30, Nick Stewart rated it it was amazing. Those were the '80s and '90s. We were "Gen-X. Get over here right now!
We're all calling in sick today. Mel has a a stripper who used to be a contortionist coming over to serve Jello-O shots -- oh, and have you heard any of the bands coming out of Seattle these days? Unfortunately, there were and still are 75 million of them, and only or-so million of us.
Without tooting our collective horn, I'll say that on the whole, we were more pensive, more individualistic, and much less inclined to accept or reject anything categorically. Once the youthful rebelliousness see above had run its course, our interests lay more in the direction of exploration than of conquest or destruction. The major failing of this approach especially in the transitional stage between rebellion and exploration is that it le one to read unconscionable quantities of utter "horth thit.
At forty-four, it seems downright juvenile and imbecilic -- tantrums and fantasies lent ersatz "legitimacy" by virtue of appearing in print. Scroll back to paragraphs 3 and 4 momentarily. Yeah, why? What was the character development on, dude? I must've missed it. I only remember a bunch of nymphos with preschool mindsets. They kinda remind me of my last boss's daughter, come to think of it And for you young'uns out there: Just go to the gas station, lie about your age, and buy a skin mag. The material is less pretentious, and you'll be less inclined to court psychosis by trying to convince yourself that it's "art.
The first of the "dirty" books, I think!
