Ms. Heimel is a delightful, neo-feminist humorist best known for the hilarious and immortal Sex Tips for Girls. She has taken material from that book and put it into the mouths of three characters in this one: Cynthia and her friends Cleo and Rita. "These are the times that try a girl's soul," begins Cynthia, and then she and her friends proceed to tell us why the times are so trying and what they are doing to cope with them. We learn about "The Great Boy
In his forty-year career, Michael Baden has conducted more than 20,000 autopsies. Considered one of the world's leading pathologists, he was New York City medical examiner from 1960 to 1985 and is now co-director of the New York State Police Medicolegal Investigation Unit. The host of the popular program Autopsy on HBO, Dr. Baden brings riveting stories and expert analysis to Dead Reckoning.
Along with award-winning writer Marion Roach, Dr. Baden, takes readers on a you-are-there tour of the morgue to demonstrate how the advances in forensic science are helping to solve crimes as never before. They visit cases, both famous and ordinary, to explain why the first hour at a crime scene is crucial. Readers are also invited to be present at the analysis of soil samples, plant matter, insects, blood spatters, bone, teeth, hair, weather, and other crime scene evidence to witness how they can improve the chances of a just verdict.
What Sherwin Nuland did for the science of death, Dr. Baden and Dead Reckoning does for the science of forensic pathology, offering what Tracy Kidder calls a "fascinating window into the world of the medical detective."
Cynthia Heimel has been described by the Chicago Tribune as "perhaps our funniest war correspondent on the war between the sexes"; her wisdom on dating includes such gems as: "My new rule is to never believe a person is interested until you feel his tongue down your throat." If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet?! shows Heimel at her wicked best. When sex pales in comparison to watching sports, when ostensibly adult men still don't understand why women need to work, when city-chic black and arugula salads have been taken over by Middle America, Cynthia Heimel is there to remind us that if we can't remake the world (or even the loved ones who are driving us crazy), we can at least laugh at it. Like a hip Erma Bombeck or a Dorothy Parker for today, she is an antidote to an absurd world for smart, sane women. If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet?! -- now a national best-seller -- has caused The Boston Globe to hail Cynthia Hiemel as "a goddess and a role model." "Brilliant, ballsy ... wise and loving ... She makes me feel militantly on my own side. What pleasure; what relief." -- Mademoiselle
This collection is vintage Heimel and reminds us how much we truly need her to guide us through the maelstrom of our times. Where else can a woman find such expert dating advice as: "My new rule is to never believe a person is interested until you feel his tongue down your throat." Get Your Tongue Out of My Mouth, I'm Kissing You Good-bye shows Heimel at her wicked best. She is our downtown Dorothy Parker, and an antidote to this absurd world for smart, sane women.
Cynthia Heimel was oppressed, just like you, by loneliness and indecision and love and lust and high heels. She decided to have a wonderful time anyway, but it hurt. From the crucible of her agony she wrote the runaway hit, Sex Tips for Girls, and everyone (except Christian fundamentalists) thought it was funny and wise. Actually, it was a perfect book, especially when it told you to get into bed upside down.
Cynthia smiled wanly at her success, because frankly the oppression continued. It was even worse. So then from the crucible of that agony she wrote Advanced Sex Tips for Girls, another perfect book, something to giggle at whether you were brokenhearted or warily in love again.
In Advanced Sex Tips for Girls we take a tour of the decades that informed our sexual politics. Using Cynthia's own life in particular, we learn why we are the way we are and how we can understand the Book of Love.
Should you date a man who's on Prozac? Why is "single" a buzzword that makes us feel like killing ourselves? What's so funny about a man in a dress? Why was the panty girdle the straw that broke the back of the patriarchy? What if your son gets married on MTV? Is the Backlash over? Why does the theory of evolution dictate that every human must get laid as much as humanly possible? And just wait until you read "The Hobag Manifesto," which will join The Female Eunuch and The Second Sex in the pantheon of feminist literature and will make you die laughing.
You'll love this book. It will become your new best friend.
Cynthia Heimel seduced readers with her runaway bestseller Sex Tips for Girls. Now, in this eagerly awaited follow-up, Heimel takes us on a journey toward romantic enlightenment and finds it's not all that far from midtown.
