The Perfect Elizabeth free pdf "My name is Eliza. My sister's name is Bette. Both of our names are diminutives of Elizabeth. It is as if we are the broken parts of one perfect Elizabeth"

Liza is a would-be poet who spends miserable days as a legal secretary, while her sister, Bette, is teaching at a prestigious university and writing her dissertation on Toast in the English Novel. Bette has even taken to eating only that which the characters she is writing about would eat: nice cups of tea, boiled egg on toast, mincemeat.... Liza is a bit concerned. She is also concerned about the status of her relationship with her actor boyfriend Gregor. They are not living together, and that is a problem.

Then there is the issue of Liza's career, or the lack thereof. Can dog walking be considered a career? Liza is beginning to think so. Mercifully, Bette is merely a local phone call away.

By the end of this charming novel, the sisters have dealt with unemployment, infidelity, interfering parents, Hollywood, lemmings, a pregnancy, and a wedding. Smart, poignant, and very funny, The Perfect Elizabeth will strike a chord with anyone who has a sister who is nothing like them, anyone who has a sister who is just like them, and anyone who ever wanted a sister.


"An up-to-the-minute comedy of manners in the grand tradition of Jane Austen, Barbara Pym, and Helen Fielding, The Perfect Elizabeth is a book to be devoured (yes, like a pint of ice cream). Then you'll want to rush to tell your best friend to read it too. Libby Schmais has written a very funny and entirely charming novel that is sure to warm the heart."
BINNIE KIRSHENBAUM, AUTHOR OF PURE POETRY
