Synopses & Reviews
Once a girl gets past the age of eight, she knows her deadliest weapon is her tongue. Womens Wicked Wit
is a sumptuous selection of 2,000 of womens most acerbic comments on life, chock-full of quotations from Maria Callas, Cher, Hillary Clinton, Marlene Dietrich, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Fran Lebowitz, Sophia Loren, Madonna, Dolly Parton, Miss Piggy, Joan Rivers, Rita Rudner, Mae West, Oprah Winfrey, Virginia Woolf, and many more. Nothing and no one escapes these womens glare: women on women, women on men and other animals, and a huge range of other subjects. The whole proves that when it comes to cutting remarks, the female of the species is indeed deadlier than the male.
“Talk about girl talk! When it comes to men, marriage, money and more, words from the mouths of famous women are the cutting edge of wit. And Womens Wicked Wit offers some real zingers!” —The Globe
“There is something for everyone in these pithy, funny, outrageous, enigmatic, feminist, antifeminist, arrogant, self-mocking quotations.” —Publishers Weekly
