...The New Rules for Blondes will be funny to readers who like raunchy blue humor or, in Ms. Coppock’s case, humor that is screaming yellow, brassy, and very very blonde.
-NY Journal of Books

Synopsis

Writer, comedienne, and full-time Blonde, Selena Coppock offers up adventures, misadventures, and golden-hued nuggets of wisdom in a laugh-out-loud anthem for those of us who really do have more fun. . . .

The modern blonde is savvy, wise, confident, capable, and not afraid to laugh at herself when the occasion calls for it. She knows who she is and is prepared to subvert all stereotypes (although she's not above wielding her golden tresses to her advantage), and knows how to be both classy and a little brassy.

In the way only a Boston-bred New Yorker who once won "Best Hair" in her high school graduating class could, Coppock doles out tongue-in-cheek advice about avoiding hair disasters, the consequences of dating a man who cares a little too much about his own hair product, and so much more in an outrageous essay collection that will have even the staunchest of raven-haired beauties considering a trip to the nearest salon.

 

About Selena Coppock

See more books from this Author
A natural blonde who is (now) more faithful to her colorist than she has ever been to any boyfriend, Selena Coppock is a comedian, writer, and editor based in New York City. She has studied both improv and sketch comedy extensively, training at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (NY), ImprovOlympic (Chicago), and ImprovAslyum (Boston). She has earned spots in a multitude of comedy festivals, including the Boston Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Competition, Detroit Comedy Festival, North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, the Out of Bounds Festival, and the Ladies Are Funny Festival (Austin, TX). She's a proud Moth Story Slam winner (March, 2011) and her comedy writing has been featured on McSweeney's, the Collared Sheep, and Rock Bottom Stories. She has also been featured on The Revolution (ABC), The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet (FOX), TheApiary.com, ComedySmack.com, CollegeHumor.com, PMSports.com, and in the Boston Phoenix, Boston Metro, and the Boston Globe. When not pushing her pro-blonde agenda, Selena can usually be found in a dive bar lamenting the breakup of Guns 'n Roses and putting Bob Seger's "Night Moves" on the juke box. This is her first book.
