Eating Fish with a Bitter Aftertaste
Eating Fish with a Bitter Aftertaste is a fantastic account of Phoebe Frisbee, a troubled suburban housewife and her three ennui ridden, social climbing friends. They live on the same street in an affluent Long Island village during the late 1990s and they are convinced they have discovered the formula for everlasting youth and beauty. When Phoebe wakes up one day locked in a mental health facility, mute and disheveled, with no idea how she arrived there, her hilarious and frightening adventure begins. We are taken back in time, though Phoebes hypnotherapy sessions, to piece together the mystery surrounding her incarceration and the bizarre events that led up to it. The seachange that Phoebe and her cronies experience takes them on a wild ride through the trends of the nineties. Eating Fish with a Bitter Aftertaste is a chowder of pop psychology, substance abuse, fundamentalist cults, the weight loss industry, and the animal rights movement. Although this is a work of fiction, the author wishes to remain anonymous. This book includes a small collection of recipes.
