The Guy Not Taken (2006)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Sep 05, 2006; Writer: Jennifer Weiner; Genre: Fiction; Publisher: Atria

These stories range from an old lady held hostage to a New Yorker who gives up killer real estate for a guy.

Fashion Moment
Weiner's women aren't exactly fashionistas: One character runs barefoot in her satin-bodiced gown into the pouring rain on her wedding day.

Lowdown
Weiner's fans will recognize the kooky-kid-sister sagas, but it's the new territory — notably ''Swim'' and ''Dora on the Beach'' — that shouldn't be missed.
