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 500 entries of sage advice show us how to get through life with a little grace and a lot of fun. From how to accept compliments, to when to wear cami-knickers,” to how to deal with ambivalence (toward lovers, friends or foes), and just why ample proportions and owning a cat and a fancy dress are more fulfilling than sex. Like a dictionary, topics are cross-referenced and many include insights from the famed and infamous: Oscar Wilde, Coco Chanel, Mae West, Kurt Vonnegut, Even Ensler, Camus, Anais Nin, and 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 modern life that only women can understand, The Book for Dangerous Women is the grown-up and contemporary reference book every woman needs.
