Mermaids in Paradise

Satire. Lydia Millet’s novel, Mermaids in Paradise, offers readers who love satire the hilarious story of a honeymoon. Narrator Deb met her husband, Chip, on a speed date and for so many reasons they seem made for each other. The contrasts in their personalities provide abundant material for Millet’s narrative and for her humorous and quirky viewpoint on contemporary behavior. After Deb and Chip discovery mermaids Millet delivers page after page of satire with sharp wit and finely written prose. I laughed often while reading this novel, and was thoroughly entertained.
