Often regarded as her finest and most literary work, Mr. Right Is Dead is Rona Jaffe’s collection of short stories from 1965. Containing five stories and one novella, each story has the savvy and sharp tone that characterize the best of Rona Jaffe’s writing. The title novella centers on a call girl with “a heart of gold,” who acquires lovers and money with her innocent charm, and closes with “Rima The Bird Girl,” about a woman who assumes a new identity each time she has an affair. Each story carries its own unique and engaging voice; altogether they are about women looking for self-fulfillment and salvation through lovers, money, and fleeting worldly pleasures. Mr. Right Is Dead is about those searching desperately for “the best of everything” and learning a great deal about love, and its falsities, along the way.
