Postcards from Route 1-800

My favorite novels are the travel stories; Huck and Jim down the Mississippi, Gus and Call up the Montana Trail, the Joads across Rte 66. "Wait and See Annie Lee" is right in that roving tradition, but with a sly dada-ist twist. Although bodily rooted on the Continental Divide Annie Lee wanders the network of 1-800 emergency phone lines. Her adventures in this land of dis-embodied voices are laugh out loud funny, as is her stream of self-consciousness travelogue. Told with a light touch, a sharp eye, and a warm heart. A *very* good read; you'll be glad you made the trip.

I laughed, I cried. It was better than "Cats"!

Annie Lee is my new heroine, and so is Michelle Curry Wright. This novel gives us a funny and insightful look at the neuroticisms of a quirky thirtiesh waitress trying to live and breed in a funky little ski town. Alternating moments of hilarity and deep introspection kept me turning the pages, half expecting the familiar characters to walk out and join me for a cup of coffee.After reading this book, you will forever wonder about "the woman behind the waitress". ...And don't forget to tip!

A good beach read

Obsessive Annie Lee Fleck is a perfectionist pessimist, a fatal combination when she sets her mind on doing something. Not only does whatever she wants done must be 200 per cent flawless regardless of cost, she performs a complete Murphy analysis to determine what could go wrong to insure that never happens. Annie Lee wants a baby in the worst way. She begins her overkill to insure this happens, driving her beleaguered spouse to seek shelter and comfort elsewhere. Even worse, Annie Lee begins to call the local Poison Control Center on a daily basis and sometimes more than that. She acts with the counselors as if she already has a baby though she is not pregnant and her husband has moved from Pike, Colorado to Seattle to escape her latest obsession. This marriage appears busted unless they can find a common peak like the restaurant they both want to open. WAIT AND SEE, ANNIE LEE starts off as a hilarious satire that rips the basic tenets of society. However about half way into the tale, the plot takes an unnecessary turn to cuddly capriciousness and loses some of its edge. The story line overall is amusing due to the eccentric and likable characters including Annie Lee (as long as she is not part of the reader's household). Michelle Curry Wright shows the right stuff for those readers who want something completely different.Harriet Klausner
