Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

A darkly funny and very personal attempt to answer the question by America's longest-running advice columnist 

When E. Jean Carroll - possibly the liveliest woman in the world and author of Ask E. Jean in Elle Magazine - realized that her eight million readers and question-writers all seemed to have one thing in common - problems caused by men - she hit the road. Criss-crossing the country with her blue-haired poodle Lewis Carroll, E. Jean stopped in every town named after a woman between Eden, Vermont and Tallulah, Louisiana to ask women the crucial question: What Do We Need Men For? 

E. Jean gave her rollicking road trip a sly, stylish turn when she deepened the story, creating a list called “The Most Hideous Men of My Life”, and began to reflect on her own sometimes very dark history with the opposite sex. 

What advice would she have given to her past selves - as Miss Cheerleader USA and Miss Indiana University? Or as the fearless journalist, television host, and eventual advice columnist she became? E. Jean intertwines the stories of the outspoken people she meets on her road trip with her own history of bad behavior (from mafia bosses, media titans, boyfriends, husbands, a serial killer, and others) creating a decidedly dark yet hopeful, hilarious and thrilling narrative. Her answer to the question What Do We Need Men For? will shock men and delight women.

She’s still got it

I have always enjoyed reading E Jean Carroll and this book is as creative and beautifully written as ever. It was a plus to hear her read it.
Very entertaining.
I believe what she says about Donald Trump and commend her for telling on him.

Told like stories around the campfire

Some books I read the hard copy at home or walking on the beach and listen to the Audible version while driving; this is one. She has a point. A reader will either get it or not. I don't expect to see much middle ground. I've always thought E. Jean's never been afraid to put herself out there. But talking about her personal experiences out there hasn't been so easy. Loved meeting so many interesting characters along the way. Thank you, E. Jean Carroll.
