"A huge talent has arrived. Mariko Tamaki mines her urban demi-monde with bad-ass candour and comic genius." -- Jane Farrow, Canadian writer, producer, and filmmaker

"If I were as funny as Ms. Tamaki, I'd take my act on the road and score some tail." -- R.M. Vaughan, writer Xtra Magazine

Tamaki's new book on queer urban girldom is an easy, breezy and funny collection of mini rants and melancholy musings -- Leah Rumack, Now Magazine

Format: Paperback
Bottom line: this book is *funny*.
It takes quite a bit to get me to laugh out loud, in real life and particularly in print, but this book did it.
My enjoyment was probably enhanced by the fact that I live in the same city as the author and so have personal experience to back up some of her stories with.
Though it is a fair bit of $$$ for a very short read (a couple hours) and definitely not for one easily offended or searching for serious social commentary, this book is worth reading.
