About the Book
Move over Primates of Park Avenue, and say hello to a more evolved female archetype. Meet Mina Baron and Jill Stone. These domestic doyennes bring humility back to ‘Real Housewives’ – reminding society that women can be resolutely adventurous, defiantly gritty, endlessly relevant, undeniably talented and indomitably resilient. Jill is a quirky creative writer who feels completely under-appreciated and yearns for her big break. Mina, meanwhile, is recovering from a rare illness and no longer recognizes the woman staring back at her in the mirror. Mina and Jill steal away to Montreal for a quick respite from New York, only to wind up entangled in bizarre tourist encounters that lead them to battle inner demons. Subsequently, these bawdy besties don’t just navigate life’s convolutions; they savor the delicious mess that it is. During a risqué three-day stint in Canada, they critique the absurdity of a bourgeois existence on both sides of the North American border. After work cocktails, shopping, or a day at the spa – they turn mundane rituals into spirited, gritty adventures. A couple of impetuous New Yorkers, Jill and Mina question themselves and everyone around them. They are determined to ditch insecurity, scoffing at social taboos and stereotypes along the way. With zany antics aplenty, the disco fry eating travelers ultimately confront their imperfections, and rely on steadfast camaraderie to navigate their bumpy ride.
