Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the unforgettable Autobiography of A Face comes a collection of wonderfully unexpected essays on life, love, sex, God and politics.

Whether she is contemplating promiscuity or The New Testament, lamenting about what she should have said to Oprah, or learning to tango, Grealy seduces and surprises the reader at every turn. With the sheer brilliance of her imagination, Grealy leads us on delightful journeys with her wit, unflinching honesty and peerless intelligence. As Seen On TV breaks the mould of the essay, and is destined, like the memoir that preceded it, to become a modern classic.

About the Author

Lucy Grealy is an award-winning poet and author of the highly acclaimed memoir, Autobiography of a Face (New York Times Notable Book of the Year). She lives in New York City and is currently working on a novel.
