Trixie and Katya's Guide to Professional Womanhood
Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova took the world by storm with their Guide to Modern Womanhood, a book of expert advice on beauty, homemaking, and relationships. Now they’re tackling an even bigger challenge: finding success in the modern workplace.
In Working Girls, Trixie and Katya dole out both savvy and satirical advice for every stage of working life, from choosing a career path to sailing into a blissful retirement, in step-by-step guides, quizzes, the world’s most bizarre aptitude test, and more. Searching for the perfect interview outfit? Agonizing over how to get that raise? Suspicious that your colleague doesn’t really hope their email “finds you well”? Trixie and Katya have got you covered. They also share personal stories from their own remarkable careers and their philosophies on everything from mastering office lingo to getting fired with dignity, all alongside hilarious, gorgeous photos.
Witty, beautiful, and packed with wisdom, Working Girls is the ultimate guide for the working woman.
In this hysterical sequel to Trixie and Katya's Guide to Modern Womanhood, the drag queens pontificate on finding success in the professional world. Aiming to "extend a petite and perfectly manicured helping hand" to readers with big career ambitions, the RuPaul's Drag Race stars share their unique perspectives on everything from careers in the service industry to climbing the corporate ladder and, perhaps most significantly, the necessity of "dressing for success," which they illustrate in impeccably styled workplace ensembles (as well as others that are decidedly NSFW)—"Call me broken, call me dark-sided," Mattel opines, "but I love nothing more than walking into an establishment and being greeted by a lacquered-up hourly employee." Elsewhere, Katya offers advice on taking a gap year ("the first and easiest way to avoid entering the workplace"), sexy thesis topic suggestions ("The Male Gaze and Erotic Pleasure of Riverdale"), and raucous reflections on retirement ("You Better Not Work!"). While the humor is lewd and the expletives are aplenty, the authors also dive into serious business, like exposing the less glamorous aspects of fame ("Drag, like show business, was never meant to be a get-rich-quick scheme and should be viewed as more parallel to hard drug use"). This bawdy manual slays.
