9780007357369: Backwards in High Heels: The Impossible Art of Being Female

This smart and frank collection distills the trials and triumphs of being a woman, all in a gifty volume filled with whimsical fullcolor illustrations. In 15 subject-driven chapters relevant to women of all ages, authors Tania Kindersley and Sarah Vine’s essays cover topics ranging from feminism to face cream, motherhood to money, and politics to perfection. Titles like The Danger of Romantic Love,” Why There is No Such Thing as a Guilt-Free Working Mother,” How Not to Go Mad,” parts 1 and 2, and Why There is No Excuse for Bad Sex” develop into a tuned and sophisticated voice that is at once a mother, best friend, and shrink, revising expectations, bashing stereotypes, and illuminating the experience of life.

This is the ultimate sophisticated gift for any woman of any age. Both young and old will find familiarity in the admonitions, recollections, and powerful advice of two writers who have done it all. This brilliant feat of realism,” so called by the Sunday Times Magazine, gently guides the way without claiming to have all the answers.

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The world is a fraught place for the contemporary female. Working mothers are still expected to make their children s costumes for the school play, despite the fact that home economics was abolished in the Seventies; we re told it s not looks but brains that count, and yet if we dare to leave the house looking vaguely our age we re made to feel like failures; women s magazines run earnest articles about the evils of size 0 culture, only to feature models with hips like 10-year-old boys a few pages later; we pay the same level of taxation as men, and yet on average we earn 25 less. So, this book - a book for women who never got around to perfecting the art of domestic divinity but would quite like to be able to cook supper for six without having a nervous breakdown; who never quite mastered Cosmo s 101 ways to please your man, but don t want the embarrassment, not to say inconvenience, of him running off with a 19-year-old Russian supermodel. It s your mother, your best friend, your guru and your shrink wrapped up in book form, with jokes. It s the antidote to every stupid, boring, reductive magazine article you ve ever read, or every silly, hair-twirling, chick lit confection about girls called Arabella who marry bankers and live in Gstaad. It s for women who love their children but don t want them to run their lives; and for women who love their lives and won t have them run by children. It s about revising expectations, exploding myths and generally dealing with all that life, love and other people have to throw at you. Codice libro della libreria AA89780007357369
