V (most names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent) is your average narcissistic business woman. Well okay, she may not be so average since she's sold her soul to the devil in return for beauty, success and the envy of all around her. V was once the frumpy, underappreciated divorcee of a slime-bucket who left her for her former best friend. She was at her lowest when fashion guru Paolo introduced her to the Life Enrichment Program. That's when she met Lucy, the queen high diva of the underworld (honestly, where do these rumors of horns and pitchforks come from). Like any good pyramid scheme, the Life Enrichment Program is performance based; you raise a level for each new soul you recruit.

A chance meeting with an honest and good man (yeah, who knew you could find one in New York City) has V re-evaluating her situation. She's beginning to have these strange and unnatural do good things. Like saving a drowning child (actually V saved the dog, her knight in shining armor got the kid) and she's even beginning to feel bad about a few of her more impressionable recruits. Even if she wanted to go back to her mundane life there is no way to renege on a deal with the devil...or is there?

THE DIVA'S GUIDE TO SELLING YOUR SOUL is a hilarious poke at our narcissistic and materialistic world by taking a serious subject and mutating it into something resembling 'Gidget sells her soul then saves the world'. V has no desire to become a 'nobody' again, but these goody-two-shoes urges just won't go away. Lucy's punishments (like inflating V's thighs two sizes) and V reactions will have you laughing out loud. V's personality being what it is, has her unsheathing her claws and ready to take on the devil. She (and her fat thighs) plan on stopping Lucy's plans for one bewildered and somewhat innocent recruit. The book is written from V's point of view and we get to see her somewhat catty thoughts; this is what makes the book great. A cast of wacky characters like Paolo (the closet straight designer), V's maddening mother, V's best friend/worst enemy Kimberly and a slew of others that you'll end up either loving or hating, make Ms. O'Reilly's THE DIVA'S GUIDE TO SELLING YOUR SOUL a fabulous romp through the nitty gritty underground of the fashionably soul-less.
