Inhaltsangabe: "What I learned from my father was the boys' lesson of dealing in the world--trust no one and win the first time. What I learned from my mother was the girls' lesson--trust no one and win the first time, but just in case you don't, come home, eat something, talk about it, have a drink, cry a little, then go back out there and try again."
Armed with these simple family tenets, Alex Witchel manages to struggle through a full, challenging and frequently hilarious life. And in GIRLS ONLY she goes on a soul-searching and shopping spree--with the ever present help of her wise (and occasionally exasperating) mother, Barbara, and her exasperating (and occasionally wise) sister, Phoebe.
These three form only the female half of the Witchel nuclear unit, yet they are a family of their own, and with a passionately cliquelike unity they attack the entire range of women's problems, from careers to men to aging to pedicures.
Rezension: The bond shared by women with their mothers and their sisters is undeniably complex. Alex Witchel, a style reporter for the New York Times, was lucky enough to grow up in a family of strong, sage, and funny women. The bond between Witchel, her mother Barbara, and her sister Phoebe was so tight that when she married, Witchel worried about this new arrangement cutting into her time with them. Girls Only is a sweet, witty collection of essays detailing this delicious triangle. Witchel dubs Barbara a "human Swiss Army knife": a description befitting a mom who is also an educational psychology professor, referee to sibling squabbles, dispenser of perfect tuna sandwiches, and a Trekkie. Witchel's writing is always entertaining, her wit is a constant, and the book is a pleasure.
