Publisher Description

From the author of Playing House comes a sharp and sophisticated collection of essays that takes us on a hilarious tour of our twenty-first-century obsessions and distractions.

Patricia Pearson is a working woman, wife and mother on the verge. Whether it’s being humiliated by the Beauty Bullies at the Lancôme counter or failing to live up to the Serene Mother ideal, Pearson is fed up with negotiating our present-day myths and fads. In Area Woman Blows Gasket, Pearson plumbs every facet of modern life, marriage and motherhood: from choosing the right vegan-bran-hemp diet for your family to confronting your husband’s irrational fear of mayonnaise. Adult education classes, psychotherapy, $100 haircuts, the latest news on what may or may not cause cancer, Christmas shopping — all come into sharp focus with the help of Pearson’s comic eye. Her wry brand of wisdom is a refreshing and long-awaited release from the contradictions thrown at us by society.
