Does She or Doesn't She?
By Alisa Kwitney

     Ever felt like you were in a dead-end romance, where you wanted more passion and more life? Have you ever started having fantasies about the plumber or repairman? Have the fantasies ever caused you to be like your real world? This is exactly what happens to Delilah in Does She or Doesn't She? She tends to want more from her hard-working husband and starts to show up late when she drops off her daughter, and she fails to notice that there is no food in the kitchen.

      Ms. Kwitney does a great job of bringing a comedic look at how caught up women can become when they feel that they need more in their relationships, and how distracting it can all become. Her characterization of Delilah is humorous and makes her look like a “knucklehead” at times with her forgetfulness. Each chapter begins with a fantasy of Delilah's that tends to take over the reality of Delilah's everyday life with her family. I felt that this distracted from the overall story, although it did show what Delilah wanted from her husband.
