Publisher Comments:

"What I learned from my father was the boys' lesson of dealing in the world--trust no one and win the first time. What I learned from my mother was the girls' lesson--trust no one and win the first time, but just in case you don't, come home, eat something, talk about it, have a drink, cry a little, then go back out there and try again."

Armed with these simple family tenets, Alex Witchel manages to struggle through a full, challenging and frequently hilarious life. And in GIRLS ONLY she goes on a soul-searching and shopping spree--with the ever present help of her wise (and occasionally exasperating) mother, Barbara, and her exasperating (and occasionally wise) sister, Phoebe.

These three form only the female half of the Witchel nuclear unit, yet they are a family of their own, and with a passionately cliquelike unity they attack the entire range of women's problems, from careers to men to aging to pedicures.

Synopsis:

Inspired by her series of articles in The New York Times, Alex Witchel present "Girls Only", a collection of hilarious family tenets that speak volumes about women. Embarking on a spiritual odyssey, a shopping spree, or a jaunt around her New York City neighborhood, Alex — with the help of her wise, irrepressible mother — takes female bonding to new heights, exploring women's problems as only a woman can. And what she finds is that no matter what life throws our way, family, love, and feminine sensibility can see us through it.
