This collection of the best in women's travel and humor writing takes readers around the world and back again--and they'll be happy to be reading rather than experiencing some of these adventures. Contributors include Wanda Sykes, Laurie Notaro, Wendy Dale, and Ayun Halliday.
Too many travel guides are dry lists of attractions or portentous histories of a place. This isn't the case with The Thong Also Rises. Hot on the (high) heels of Sand in My Bra and Whose Panties Are These? comes this collection of the best in womens travel and humor writing. These Ms-adventures take readers around the world and back again and theyll be happy to be reading rather than experiencing some of these adventures. Subjects include learning how to go to the bathroom with a pig in Thailand, trying to explain that sex toy to customs while Mother is watching, attending naked wedding ceremonies on Valentines Day in Jamaica, conquering that consuming fear of wooden puppets with a visit to Prague, boarding a crusty old Soviet Bomber in Laos, and more. Contributors include such notable writers and comedians as Jill Connor Browne, Wanda Sykes, Laurie Notaro, Wendy Dale, and Ayun Halliday.
