'I hope this book will prove, once and for all, that a girl doesn't need a guy in her life in order to act like a complete idiot.' Susan Jane Gilman's warm and funny account of growing up a wannabe groovy chick in 1970s and '80s New York is a coming-of-age memoir guaranteed to make you 'laugh, feel smugly superior and less alone in your life'. From a childhood desperately wanting to be famous to making a fool of herself in front of her teen idol. From dating inappropriate men to gaining street cred as a fake lesbian. And from eager-beaver rookie reporter on a decidedly unglamorous newspaper to tackling the biggest issue of all, The Wedding Dress, Gilman gleefully lays bare her gaucheness, delusions and idealism for our enjoyment. And Susans experiences are universal - whether it's coping with mean girls at school, working for a feminist boss who, it turns out, is horrible to the women who work for her, or simply being terminally uncool. Reading like terrific fiction, this entertaining memoir will strike a chord with 20- and 30-something women everywhere.
