The Book for Dangerous Women
is a sly, elegant encyclopedia of practical wisdom by three women who know a bit about life and bring their myriad experiences to bear on topics such as marriage, infidelity, motherhood, sex, fashion, friendship, work, and self-discovery.
More than five hundred entries of sage advice show us how to get through life with a little grace and a lot of funfrom how to accept compliments to when to wear “cami-knickers,” to how to deal with ambivalence (toward lovers, friends, or foes), and why owning a cat and a fancy dress may be more fulfilling than sex. Like a dictionary, topics are cross-referenced and many include insights from the famed and infamous, such as Oscar Wilde, Coco Chanel, Mae West, Eve Ensler, Albert Camus, Anaïs Nin, and William Shakespeare. A typical progression of entries is: Affairs, Age, Arrangements, Bananas, Beauty, and Beds, followed by Bereavement, Birthdays, BFs, Blueberries, and Bolt Holes.
From those conversations and counseling sessions with your mother, sisters, daughters, and friends to those moments in life that only women can understand, The Book for Dangerous Women
is the grown-up and contemporary reference book every woman needs.
