Giving the proverbial book of love a much needed rewrite, ADVANCED SEX TIPS FOR GIRLS finds Cynthia Heimel in peak form, doling out deadpan sass and wry wit in equal measure, and revealing much more about her personal life than ever before. Whether she's tackling the vital issues of our times with trademark acuity (what's so funny about a guy in a dress? what are boundary issues?); crafting a reverent hymn to the canine set ('My angel, Homer'); or looking back with hard won perspective on the last half century (The 1960s, Still a Problem for the Chicks?') Heimel more than lives up to her reputation as today's answer to Dorothy Parker. The essays in ADVANCED SEX TIPS FOR GIRLS offer founts of brilliant barbs, refreshing candur, and generation spanning humour.
Lori Gottlieb People Wickedly hilarious essays...all snappy fun. Anne Lamott author of Traveling Mercies Cynthia Heimel is the funniest, most wonderful writer on romance, and sex, and bodies. Sometimes she makes me laugh out loud and sometimes she makes me feel like crying. This book is even better than Sex Tips for Girls. I'm going to tell people I wrote it. Seattle Weekly [A] long awaited...trip (and tip) worth taking. Merrill Markoe author of It's My F---ing Birthday [This] book is so funny, smart, and hilariously enraged that I cannot recommend it too highly. Well, I guess I could. But I don't know where that would get us exactly.
