The New York Times bestselling classic of a young woman’s journey in work, love, and life
“In this swinging, funny, and tender study of contemporary relationships, Bank refutes once and for all the popular notions of neurotic thirtysomething women.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Truly poignant.” —Time
Generous-hearted and wickedly insightful, The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing maps the progress of Jane Rosenal as she sets out on a personal and spirited expedition through the perilous terrain of sex, love, relationships, and the treacherous waters of the workplace. Soon Jane is swept off her feet by an older man and into a Fitzgeraldesque whirl of cocktail parties, country houses, and rules that were made to be broken, but comes to realize that it’s a world where the stakes are much too high for comfort. With an unforgettable comic touch, Bank skillfully teases out universal issues, puts a clever new spin on the mating dance, and captures in perfect pitch what it’s like to come of age as a young woman.

This book was delightful and charming and I can't wait to reread it.
The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing
This was an amazing read. It was a novel that I read in a college contemporary literature class. 10 years later, and I'm still terracing this one at least once during the year. Beautifully developed characters...
One of the more perfect books I've read
Melissa Banks is witty and insightful. I was completely caught off guard by the sophisticated tone and near-perfect treatment of sensitive moments. All the notes are just right; truly a great read.
