1 Chick for a Day: What Would You Do If You Were One? Giles, Fiona, Editor
New York, New York, U.S.A. Simon and Schuster 2000 0-68485517-8 / 9780684855172 1st Printing Hard Copy Near Fine Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Editor
Simon & Schuster, NY, 2000. 256 pages.

Book is in Near Fine condition: light edge wear and bumped corners. Dust jacket is in Near Fine condition: light rubbing at folds. From the dust jacket: "Among this collection's brave contributors are alternative press darling Jonathan Ames, acclaimed novelist Rick Moody, premier British poet Jeremy Reed, 'Nerve' founder Rufus Griscom, and rising star Justin Chin. Many of the contributions are comic, some are cautionary, and others are downright strange; but each, at its core, pays homage to women and their sexuality. Beyond the hilarious leaps of imagination and cleverly spun conceits, Chick for a Day's chief revelation is the way physical transformation into a woman encourages greater insights into the mind and spirit of both sexes."

3 Kidding Ourselves: Breadwinning, Babies, and Bargaining Power Mahony, Rhona - SIGNED BY AUTHOR
New York, New York, U.S.A. Basic Books 1995 0465085938 / 9780465085934 Hard Copy Very Good+ Near Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Author

Dust jacket is in Near Fine condition. Sticker on dust jacket says "Autographed Copy". From the publisher: "Why do so many smart, career-oriented, even ardently feminist women end up with nearly sole responsibility for running their households and raising their children? Why does it happen even in couples who had promised to share that work equally? Kidding Ourselves traces the decisions that women and men make -- usually unwittingly -- before and after marriage, and especially after the birth of a child, that lead inevitably to an old-fashioned division of labor at home. It also explains why change is necessary. As long as nearly all men devote themselves first and foremost to paying work, they will on average out-earn women, who reduce their hours and travel in their paying job once they have a child. With this groundbreaking book, Rhona Mahony suggests practical ways to bring men into child raising and end the unfair burden of women's second shift."

From the untitled preface: "Women have an underground language, an idiomatic communication for cultural experience, because the real words are too embarrassing or unladylike. 'The Clackamas' is an attempt to capture this language, to give poetic form and shape to the non-literature of female survival. 'The Clackamas is Nietzchesque in the sense that it is an attempt in a reversal of values. Its intention is to exalt the trivial, the trivial as significant event. It is an effort to understand and explore the female source." Book is in Very Good+ condition - light general wear. Gift wrap and gift card available.
