The newly released How to Eat a Cupcake is her first novel.
Recently I asked Donohue what she was reading. Her reply:
Blueprints for Building Better Girls by Elissa SchappellVisit Meg Donohue's website and blog.
I'm reading (and loving) this tightly written, pressurized collection of linked stories that features a cast of female characters exploring what it means to be girls, women, wives, daughters, and mothers. The protagonists are quirky, funny, and poignant, propelling the stories in unpredictable directions. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a book with sharp prose and strong female leads.
