Perfect for students of writing, writers of humor, and all readers who welcome laughter, insight, and perspective into their lives.
About Gina Barreca: Hailed as “smart and funny” by People and “Very, very funny. For a woman,” by Dave Barry, Gina Barreca was deemed a “feminist humor maven” by Ms. Magazine. Novelist Wally Lamb said, “Barreca’s prose, in equal measures, is hilarious and humane." Author of ten books and editor of eleven others, her works have been translated into several languages, including Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, and German.
About Nicole Hollander: "I was a syndicated cartoonist for 25 years, which encouraged me to read the newspaper and listen to people’s conversations on the bus, to use sarcasm perhaps a bit much and to make people oddly angry…luckily no one knew my address."
