Product description

Review

“A blistering critique of modern gender relations.”—Salon

“Fun...plenty of style and wit.”—Baltimore Sun

“She'll keep you turning pages...Dowd has a voice that carries.”—People

“No one vets the culture with a keener eye than Dowd.”—Chicago Tribune

“Maureen Dowd has waded into the one topic more controversial than politics: sexual politics.”—Austin American-Statesman

“The New York Times columnist is dizzyingly well-read and well-rounded, with references from Oscar Wilde to Valley of the Dolls. My favorite part was when she casually flund the phrase 'as Carmen Miranda used to say' into a discussion of the Enron scandal...very lively...always entertaining.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“[Dowd] discusses sexual realities and absurdities, doing so with the same verve and nerve with which she handled the other hot-button topic—politics—in her 2004 bestseller, Bushworld...hilarious, cutting, and provocative.”—Booklist

“Readable, provocative, and entertaining.”—*Library Journal

About the Author

Born in Washington, Maureen Dowd began her journalism career in 1974 as an editorial assistant for The Washington Star, where she later became a sports columnist, metropolitan reporter and feature writer. From there she went to Times magazine, then moved to The Times’s Washington bureau in 1986 to cover politics. She has covered seven presidential campaigns and served as a White House correspondent. In 1995 she became a columnist for The New York Times Op-Ed page and in 1999 won the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary.

In addition to her two New York Times bestsellers, Bushworld and Are Men Necessary?, Dowd has written for GQVanity FairRolling StoneThe New RepublicMademoiselleSports Illustrated and others.
