"Every man should read this book." --Jay Heinrichs, author of Thank You for Arguing

75 women writers, ages 20 to 89, were invited by editor Gina Barreca to make a party out of their life's most unnerving, challenging, illuminating, desperate, and hilarious moments. You know many of these brilliant women, but you've never heard them like this! With new works commissioned for the book from:

  • Marge Piercy, NYT Bestseller and member of the American Academy of Poets
  • Jane Smiley, Pulitzer-Prize winner
  • Mimi Pond, NYT bestseller graphic artist
  • Liza Donnelly, New Yorker staff cartoonist
  • Fay Weldon, Commander of the British Empire
  • Ilene Beckerman, bestselling author of Love, Loss, and What I Wore
  • Nicole Hollander, Sylvia creator
  • Lisa Landry and Leighann Lord, stand-up comics
  • And many more! Political campaigners, devoted teachers, lousy daughters, good mothers, would-be nuns, admired sportswriters, grad-school-wanna-bes, revenge-driven sisters, frustrated roommates, body-fluid-sorting professionals, lace-loving fashion mavens, intrepid daters, hungry lovers, justice-seeking nasty-women, ACE wedding celebrants, trapped wives, and women with all kinds of ammunition tell their stories--and their stories are all under 750 words.
