These wild words--from strippers, CEOs, poets, senators, and every kind of woman in between--make delectable reading for sassy, untamable, and fabulous women everywhere.
What do actress Helen Mirren, author Louisa May Alcott, and Nobel-Prize winning scientist Gertrude B. Elion have in common? They are all fascinating, outspoken women whose quotes, along with Dorothy Parker, Coco Chanel, and Gloria Steinem, grace the pages of this book. From tart to terrorist, stripper to senator, B-girl to big name VIP, these down and dirty dishers exclaim on love, sex, and politics.
About the Author
Autumn Stephens was born in a New Mexico mining community whose population began to dwindle shortly after her arrival (though she swears this was mere coincidence) and finally faded from the map altogether. Stephens has worked as a medical coder, a phone sex scriptwriter, a composer of fabricated Tarot prognostications, and something called a "special investigator" for the State Bar of California. She is the author of over 20 books for women, including the wildly popular "Wild Women" series published by Conari Press.
