    Celebrated playwright and magnetic wit Wendy Wasserstein was firmly rooted in New York's cultural life, but her appeal is universal. Shiksa Goddess collects her urbane, inspiring, and deeply empathetic essays, all written when she was in her forties, and all infused with her trademark irreverent humor: everything from Chekhov, politics, and celebrity, to family, fashion, and real estate.
