The Book for Dangerous Women
A Guide to Modern Life
Liz Hoggard • Clare Conville • Sarah-Jane Lovett
Ever wonder how to best dress your apple-shaped figure? Do you know the top twelve rules on how to properly (and discreetly) conduct an affair? The Book for Dangerous Women is a sly, elegant encyclopedia of practicalwisdom by three women who know a bit about life and bring their myriad of experiences of bear on topics such as marriage, infidelity, motherhood, sex, fashion, friendship, work, and self-discovery.
More than five hundred entries of safe advice show us how to get through life with a little grace and a lot of fun — from how to accept compliments to when to wear "cami-knickers," to how to deal with ambivalence (toward lovers, friends, or foes), and why owning a cat and a fancy dress may be more fulfilling than sex. Many entries include insights from the famed and infamous, such as Oscar Wilde, Coco Chanel, Mae West, Eve Ensler, Albert Camus, Anaïs Nin, and William Shakespeare.
Written and compiled by three dangerously knowledgeable, absolutely fabulous, and mordantly witty women, The Book for Dangerous Women is a must-have guide for moments of crisis and a delectable compendium of humour and advice.
