Meet Alice Finnegan: thirty-something, single, and stuck in a cycle of horrific secretarial temp jobs, while struggling to fulfill her childhood ambitions of stardom and sharing an apartment with her ninety-something grandmother, a feisty, funny, former Ziegfeld showgirl.

Along the rocky road to independence Alice encounters a colorful cast of oddballs, nuts, and control freaks (including members of her immediate family), succumbing to the pitfalls of office romances and the perils of outshining her bosses as she endeavors to keep her sanity intact.

Often hilarious, yet also poignant and touching, Temporary Insanity is another madcap New York adventure by the author of Miss Match and Reality Check.
