Publisher Description

A funny and moving book that Australian women of all generations will love.

With all the moxie of an RSL barmaid and the library card of a research fellow, Nelly Thomas has emerged to talk about nothing slighter than the trials of her generation... She's erudite, earthy and entirely unemployable.
Helen Razor - The Age (review Melb Comedy Festival)

Growing up in post-feminist Australia, Nelly Thomas, one of Australia’s
most gifted and natural comedians, was told she could ‘have it all’.
She’s giving it a crack – but she still isn’t quite sure what ‘it’ is.

What do women want?

In pursuit of answers, Thomas has tried being a telemarketer, a professional
student, a fast-food worker, a broadcaster, a smoker, a prostitute’s confidant,
a health advocate, a reality television obsessive, a mother, a partner (or is it
girlfriend? lover?), an award-winning comedian, a sex-educator, a Loony Lefty
Feminista and a self-confessed fatty boombah. Like many of her generation, she’s
had a lot of options, yet she’s wondering – which do you choose?

In this hilarious part-memoir, part-manifesto, Thomas navigates the murky
waters of her life and womanhood in the twenty-first century. She tackles the big
contemporary issues – career, equality, family, porn, sex, entertainment, obesity,
parenting, culture, class, Beyonce’s derriere – with customary insight and a
wickedly dry wit.

A must-read for the modern Aussie woman.
