"A bold, inventive, and slyly witty work of debut fiction about life and love in your twenties When Sylvie moves to New York at the age of twenty-three, all she can think about is kissing. Who is kissing whom, she wonders, and are they doing more than kissing, and when she meets the right guy, is a kiss just a kiss, or could it lead to something more? As Sylvie and her friends navigate the treacherous world of their twenties, more men are added to their kissing lists - the porn star, the pseudo-intellectual, the creepy boss, the animal rights activist. But which kiss will be the one to ultimately change their lives? With sardonic humor and unexpected emotional force, THE KISSING LIST follows a group of women who take outrageous chances in life and love, and merrily defy the expectations of parents and friends - perfectly capturing that harrowing and thrilling decade in life when just about anything seems possible"--

A true waste of time. A rambling, disjointed set of stories that lacks any cohesiveness or feeling of connecting or identifying with the characters, especially the lead, Sylvie. The title is very misleading, promises "exuberant, imaginative, funny prose, but delivers none. Bottom line _ i wouldn't recommend it.

I love the composition of these short stories. Stephanie is a very skilled writer and showed an amazing amount of depth. Each story had a certain character all of it's own that did lend itself to the whole.
