    ITEM#: 12406190

    GINA BARRECA, Professor at UConn, wrote Babes in Boyland, They Used to Call Me Snow White but I Drifted and co-authored I'm With Stupid: One Man, One Woman, and 10,000 Years of Misunderstandings Between The Sexes Cleared Right Up with Pulitzer Prize winner Gene Weingarten. She grew up in Brooklyn, NY but now lives in Storrs, CT. Go figure.

    "From spotting chin hairs in a rearview mirror to rinding a bra that never fits, the book is 120-mph humor!"---CINDY ADAMS, New York Post

    "These eminently readable pieces will have people laughing out loud, then sighing thoughtfully. Many readers, especially women, will enjoy, discuss, and reread this quick, breezy work of commentary, a book that stirs up dust long after its covers are closed."---Booklist

    "Barreca is probably the funniest woman writing in America. She does what all great comedians do: latches onto the absurd, looks at it from a number of equally absurd angles, and is pretty fearless at making fun of anything, including herself."---RITA CIRESI, award-winning author of Mother Rocket and Pink Slip

    In a World Where Eye Cream is Made From Placenta, Gina Barreca is the lone voice calling out "But wait, whose placenta is it?" In this collection of deliciously quotable essays, Gina asks the big questions: Why is there no King Charming? Why does no bra ever fit? Why do people say "cougar" like it's a bad thing? Why do we call it a glass ceiling when it's just a thick layer of men? Barreca packs a hilarious punch while gleefully rejecting emotional torture, embracing limitless laughter, and showing women how they can conquer the world with good friends, sharp wit, great shoes, and not a single worry about VPLs.
