A perennial bestseller after nearly two decades, SEX TIPS FOR GIRLS raised the bar for cultural humorist-critics. Now Cynthia Heimel weighs in with a sequel full of observations wry, sassy, raunchy and wise. Giving the proverbial book of love a much needed rewrite, ADVANCED SEX TIPS FOR GIRLS finds Cynthia Heimel in peak form, doling out deadpan sass and wry wit in equal measure, and revealing much more about her personal life than ever before. Whether she's tackling the vital issues of our times with trademark acuity (what's so funny about a guy in a dress? what are boundary issues?); crafting a reverent hymn to the canine set ('My angel, Homer'); or looking back with hard won perspective on the last half century (The 1960s, Still a Problem for the Chicks?') Heimel more than lives up to her reputation as today's answer to Dorothy Parker. The essays in ADVANCED SEX TIPS FOR GIRLS offer founts of brilliant barbs, refreshing candor, and generation spanning humour.
