Spotlight: clutch: a novel by Lisa Becker
About clutch: a novel
Clutch is the laugh-out-loud, chick lit story that chronicles the dating misadventures of
Caroline Johnson, a single purse designer, who goes through a series of unsuccessful
romantic relationships she compares to various styles of handbags – the “Hobo” starving artist, the “Diaper Bag” single dad,
the “Briefcase” intense businessman, etc. With her best friend, bar owner Mike by
her side, the overly-accommodating Caroline drinks Chardonnay, puts her heart on the line,
endures her share of unworthy suitors and finds the courage to stand up for the handbag
style that embodies what she ultimately wants – the “Clutch” or someone to hold onto.
