    Author Alexandra Koslow is the typical New York gal-about-town: single and obsessed with finding "the one" and the ultimate beauty treatment. She has worked in advertising, mixology (bartending), and publishing. She lives in Hoboken, N.J.
    Lysa Hawke uses her love of retro objects as inspiration for many of her illustrations. She attends the School of Visual Art in Manhattan and lives with her husband and cat in New Jersey.
    What do you get when you mix one part savvy girl insight with one part saucy glam-art illustrations? A hip, hilarious trip through city life as we know it.

    Anyone who has watched an episode of Sex and the City knows that single urban life is harder than it looks! The fast pace and glossy trappings place a slick sheen on the city's rough side.

    So what's a girl to do? Laugh about it, of course! Author Alexandra Koslow and illustrator Lysa Hawke's Citybursts! is a hilarious, knowing look at dating, friendship, and beauty treatments in the urban jungle. It's a perfect gift for sophisticated women who love magazines, shoes, and socializing--even if they don't live in the city.

    Some examples of Koslow's snappy nuggets of wisdom:

    Magnificent man
    You look like runway model
    But you cheat like pig.

    Been dumped, need to shop now!
    My emergency funds are hiding--
    Credit card is a beacon of light.

    Lingering at the street table
    Leave, come back, leave again
    Come on back and buy the cheap knockoff

    Everybody's doing it!
