''Every woman should have a blowtorch,'' Julia Child once said as she commenced to caramelize the top of a crème brûlée. And every woman could use a dish of empowering bons mots every so often as well. Voilà! Here you are—the perfect little book of wit and wisecracks from outspoken free spirits that shine their piercing light on men, love, marriage, life, work, and more! ''Of all the wild beasts of land or sea, the wildest is woman'' (Menander). ''I don't have the time every day to put on makeup. I need that time to clean my rifle'' (Henriette Mantel). ''Besides Shakespeare and me, who do you think there is?'' (Gertrude Stein).
