Fed up with the sarcastic, opinionated and disrespectful women he comes across, Ellery Pierce decides his only choice is to build the perfect woman. A technician at an animatronics firm, Ellery has the experience and tools ready at his fingertips. After years of experiments and fine-tuning, Ellery feels he finally has created an artificial woman who can pass as real - Phyllis. According to Ellery, Phyllis is the perfect wife, fulfilling his every wish, from gourmet meals to sexual pleasure. Unfortunately for Ellery, he may have made her too closely in his image for his own good. Yearning to make it big in show business, Phyllis leaves Ellery with dreams of Hollywood. She works her way up from a strip club, a phone sex operation, a pornography website, and a small town playhouse to a gig in the movies. Soon she's a bona fide box office sensation. Eventually, Phyllis sets her sights on the ultimate goal - presidency of the United States. By now, after completely falling apart upon Phyllis's departure, Ellery has pulled himself together and is back with Phyllis to steer her along her course, or so he thinks. It's no surprise when Phyllis wins the election, but it's too late when Ellery begins to wonder if this time she's gone too far.

Reviews

"Adventures of the Artificial Woman finds the author of Best Friends and Little Big Man in high spirits, and in a high-concept storytelling realm....It manages to undertake a familiar form of satirical fantasy and come up with something new." -- The New York Times
