She depicts a floating world of the new generation and their city life...party, cars, ivy league school graduates, disco, avant garde music, beauty salons...Both talking about fashion, desire and alterative lifestyle, other pretty woman authors cannot compete in the same level with Annie. She mocks, she laughs, she attacks, she is outrageous and ponderous. Behind her sarcastic and comic tone, we sense her deep concern for humanity and society...Unlike other female authors who were born in the 1970s, Western-educated Annie, graduated from the prestigious University of California at Berkeley, holds a much more sophisticated world view...She doesn't show off the material wealth or high fashion in her life. Instead, she thinks they are unbearably shallow.. "
