Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acutely funny, scathing and outrageous dispatches from the heartland of consumerism.

If you thought there was no liberal life left in Orange County, think again. From her operational-base-cum-family-home deep behind enemy lines, Rebecca Schoenkopf risks all to report back on the Versace-decked, Chardonnay-swilling, Humvee-crashing denizens of the twenty-first century's most evil paradise. Whether stricken with terror at the prospect of a chance encounter with Dick Cheney or puzzling in vain over the philosophical conundrum of taking Arnold Schwarzenegger seriously, Commie Girl's mordant gaiety in the teeth of the febrile vacancy that threatens to engulf her at every turn will draw gasps of astonishment and admiration from all those who think it really can't be that bad.

Synopsis:

Acutely funny, scathing and outrageous dispatches from the heartland of consumerism.

Synopsis:

From her operational-base-cum-family-home, Commie Girl brings you this brave and brilliant journal of daily life in a land where no liberal-humanist sentiment has been detected since the dawn of Reaganism. Whether working her way through a syphilis scare or puzzling in vain over the philosophical conundrum of taking Arnold Schwarzenegger seriously, Commie Girl finds the inner solidarity to hoist the red flag everywhere it isn't welcome. And the ferocious gaiety with which she defends herself from the Versace-decked, HumVee-crashing, Chardonnay-addled denizens of the USA's ultimate evil paradise will draw gasps of astonishment and admiration from all those who think it really can't be that bad.
