Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both a literary magazine and a chronicle of girl culture, Bust was born in 1993. With contributors who are funny, fierce, and too smart to be anything but feminist, Bust is the original grrrl zine, with a base of loyal female fans – all those women who know that Glamour is garbage, Vogue is vapid, and Cosmo is clueless. The Bust Guide to the New Girl Order contains brand new, funny, sharp, trenchant essays along with some of the best writings from the magazine: Courtney Love's (unsolicited) piece on Bad Girls; the already immortal "Dont's For Boys"; an interview with girl-hero Judy Blume; and lots of other shocking, titillating, truthful articles. A kind of Our Bodies, Ourselves for Generation XX, The BUST Guide to the New Girl Order is destined to become required reading for today's hip urban girl and her admirers.

If you're looking for advice on how to attract a man or for weight-loss tips from the world's thinnest models, this is not the book for you. But if you want to have some broad-minded fun, become a Bust-carrying member of the New Girl Order. NOW!

Review:

"You have Rules women, who believe in that Mars-and-Venus, men-and-women, two-world, two-sensibility thing. And then you have BUST women, who don't do things by halves." – GQ

Review:

"Bust is feminism without the ism. Thoughtful articles sit happily alongside wicked parodies...Well-crafted and insightful, it combines the literacy of traditional writing with the uniquely personal prose of the zines." – Wired

Synopsis:

"BUST, " the original grrrl zine, offers brand new, funny, sharp, trenchant essays with some of its best writings, including Courtney Love on Bad Girls; the already immmortal "Don'ts For Boys"; and an interview with girl-hero Judy Blume. On-air radio giveaways.

I have been an avid reader of Bust magazine since it hit the newsstands, so when the book came out, I immediately bought it. I was a little disappointed with the writing compared to the actual magazine, but it was a great read. I will always prefer the magazine, but the Bust Guide is all-around good writing, fun and controversial, and the perfect gift for ANYBODY in your life who reads counter-culture magazines.
