Ana Marie Cox New York Times
Ana Marie’s novel Dog Days, a satire of Washington, D.C. life for which she was reportedly paid $250,000, was published on January 6, 2006. Her book received generally negative reviews. In The New York Times, Christopher Buckley described it as “brisk, smart” and “smutty.” In the Times as well, Janet Maslin wrote that despite Cox’s “satirical expertise,” the novel is replete with “stock characters” and “manages to be doubly conventional: it follows both an old-fashioned love-betrayal-redemption arc and the newer, bitchier nanny-Prada chick-lit motif.” Writing in Slate.com, Toby Young found the novel “shallow.”
Kirkus Reviews adjudged that Cox offers “results that make Primary Colors read like Proust” and concluded, “[R]eaders hoping for some real-life dirt (or at least a salacious facsimile) will be dealt nothing more than lightweight fluff and throwaway farce.” In the Los Angeles Times, Diana Wagman wrote, “Dog Days is predictable and, worst of all, mean-spirited. … [It] is chick lit at its most hackneyed.” “It’s a novel torn from the day before yesterday’s headlines,” wrote P.J. O’Rourke in The Washington Post.
