Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This hilarious, whip-smart collection of essays from a top writer and producer of Six Feet Under crisscrosses from the highly personal (conflating her own loss of virginity and the Kobe Bryant accusations), to the political (what she has in common with Monica and Chandra), to the outrageously Los Angelean (why women wear huge diamonds and what they must do to get them). Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants is a genre-defying combination of personal essay and memoir, or a hilarious, unruly and unapologetic evaluation of society, religion, sex, love, and — best of all — Jill Soloway.

Synopsis:

The Emmy-nominated "Six Feet Under" writer and producer takes it all off in this wickedly entertaining debut collection of very, very personal essays.

About the Author
