Funny, sophisticated and fiercely intelligent, 32-year-old Anna Schopenhauer has one weakness: men old enough to be her father. Heading home to Scarsdale for her father's 70th birthday party, she wants to break the pattern and plots revenge on a family friend--the first older man in her life--about whom she has written a recently published short story in The Atlantic Monthly. Wry and sharply observant, Funny Accent introduces a fresh new fiction talent.

Praise for Funny Accent

“Titillating....This debut novel is smart, funny and hot.” —Glamour

“[A] wry tale of sex...complexly portrayed. Thanks to whip-smart insights on love and lust, revenge and responsibility, Anna’s struggle to break free of Misha’s far-reaching grasp proves subtle, moving and true-to-life.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Shulgasser-Parker is adept at giving her characters keen, if not profound, psychological insights...her workoffers a witty, entertaining commentary on the puzzling, often-bizarre world of male-female relationships.” —Chicago Tribune

“A lovely combination of a self-conscious narrator and a feeling heroine.” —The Boston Globe (Recommended Summer Reading)

“Barbara Shulgasser-Parker writes about sex and love with a rare and refreshing precision.”
—Diane Johnson, author of Le Divorce
