Life Lessons from Incredible Women!,
This review is from: Wacky Chicks: Life Lessons from Fearlessly Inappropriate and Fabulously Eccentric Women (Paperback)
Simon Doonan celebrates a series of eccentric, flamboyant and incredibly eccentric women, in the way only an equally fabulous gay man can!
'Wacky Chicks' are B.R.U.N.C.H. (belligerent, resilient, uninhibited, creative and hilarious)These are women who do what they want and don't care what anyone thinks about it....they do pro-choice protests outside abortion clinics dressed as Satan, they are 'alternative' cheerleaders who sing chants about body fascism, they communicate with birds and they sell slashed spandex body suits. The lard-napalm incident with his gran (referred to as the more descriptive narg) is worth the price of the book alone.
This book is like a big injection of life in the arm, not only are these women incredible but Doonan as narrator frequently had me in hysterics. His thoughts on nudist colonies? 'I myself am more cautiously enthusiastic: the sight of grown people in various states of physical fitness frying their genitalia on public beaches can really put one off one's pasta salad.'
Do yourself a favour, buy this book and ditch the personality-less celebs that pass for role-models these days!
