With the same refreshing honesty, wit, and fierce feminism that fans have come to love in their wildly successful podcast, Georgia and Karen present a blueprint for how to stay sexy and stay alive. From mental health to addiction; family, relationships, and loss, these autobiographical essays offer advice and commiseration without sacrificing self awareness and humor. Much of what makes their podcast so popular can be found in these pages-- perhaps most importantly, the gentle yet insistent reminder that we are not alone.

By turns hilarious and thought-provoking, this book will take you on an unforgettable journey from the unforgiving landscape of the American Southwest to the diction of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a secret military programme to remotely pilot moths.

The Job of the Wasp: A Novel By Colin Winnette, Colin Winnette Cover Image
$16.95
Unavailable at this time.
ISBN: 9781593766801
Published: Soft Skull - January 9th, 2018

This book is like Eileen meets A Confederacy of Dunces meets Sleep Away Camp, set against the backdrop of a possibly haunted boys orphanage. Come for the overly articulate but woefully unaware teenage narrator, stay for the Devils Backbone meets Lord of the Flies vibe.

The Trouble with Women By Jacky Fleming Cover Image
$12.99
Unavailable at this time.
ISBN: 9781449479763
Published: Andrews McMeel Publishing - September 20th, 2016

"Women have been retrieving each other from the Dustbin of history for several thousand years now..."

Jacky Fleming is doing just that with this work of wit. In it we are confronted with the laughable ideas about women held by male 'geniuses' of the past, ideas that have facilitated the erasure of women's voices and accomplishments throughout history. Dripping with sarcasm and accompanied by charming illustrations, this is an easy laugh out loud read that you will want to share.
