Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress | [Susan Jane Gilman]

Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress

Based on the belief that there's more to women's lives than just getting a date, Gilman's stories tell of struggling to get a life and a clue, and engaging in some spectacularly demented behavior along the way. At turns heartbreaking, insightful, and screamingly funny, it uniquely chronicles a generation and heralds a talented writer of note.

Publisher's Summary

Based on the belief that there's more to women's lives than just getting a date, Gilman's stories tell of struggling to get a life and a clue, and engaging in some spectacularly demented behavior along the way. Whether she's an uncool white kid in a tough Puerto Rican neighborhood twirling around in her tutu, a teenager chasing rock stars, an ambitious cub reporter realizing there's more to the world than her own navel, or a feminist bride-to-be unexpectedly finding nirvana in David's Bridal Salon, Gilman's memoir is so engaging it reads like the very best fiction. At turns heartbreaking, insightful, and screamingly funny, it uniquely chronicles a generation and heralds a talented writer of note.

    "Just say no"

    If you are looking for a humorous, perceptive essays from a fresh point of view.... please download David Sedaris instead! The inanity of the trivial stories, the pretentious voice, is matched perfectly by the most patronizing narration I have ever encountered in an audiobook. I felt like a hypocrite of a thinking woman - for listening to this whole thing. I can only recommend it to people who found "The Nanny Diaries" insightful. Definitely sample before you buy!
