Three decades after its original bestselling publication, Sheila Levine is Dead and Living in New York is still completely on target as the most achingly funny book-length suicide note ever written by an agonizingly single 30-year-old trying unsuccessfully to straddle two worlds: the one she's been programmed for from birth--marriage first, life later--and the illusive swinging singles scene of liberated New York City.
Meet Sheila Levine, she's smart and funny, and her mother tells her she's beautiful. . . . But her skirt's always a bit wrinkled, she's trying to lose 15--make that 25--pounds, she just turned 30 . . . and she's still single. She tries to date and mate, she really does, but disappointment turns to desperation, and after a flash of insight, Sheila calmly decides to kill herself. So she starts to get her affairs in order and writes a suicide note to her loving parents to explain it all.
