We Should Be So Lucky: Love, Sex, Food, and Fun After Forty from the Diva of QVC

Kathy Levine, Author, Amy Sarah Appleton, Illustrator, Jane Scovell, With Pocket Books $24 (304p) ISBN 978-0-671-00848-2
In this amusing commentary on middle-age single life in the 1990s, Levine (It's Better to Laugh, coauthored with Scovell), a 40-something host on the QVC home shopping channel, delivers her thoughts on a variety of topics, including dieting, plastic surgery and the dating game. Readers will particularly enjoy her hilarious account of a singles restaurant night attended by 20 ""great"" women and six extremely boring men. Despite several setbacks (such as a chemical face peel that became infected and a duplicitous lover who made off with her $1800 loan), Levine maintains her optimism and ability to laugh at herself. She also describes her success with a physician-prescribed weight-loss pill and offers sensible advice on nutrition. She drops her relentlessly upbeat tone only in an affecting chapter on the death of her ex-husband, Jay Levine, from whom she had been divorced for 10 years. (Sept.)
