Publisher Description

Thank God for girlfriends and shared visits to powder rooms!
That’s always been the concept behind our website InThePowderRoom.com where we’ve been entertaining women with our humor and bold, brave honesty since 2009. Now we’re taking it to the next level with an anthology of original short stories from some of the wittiest women writers we know—stories they would only tell their closest friends, most likely from within the haven of a ladies’ room. Inside you’ll find 39 (mostly) true tales by women, for women, about being women—bodily changes, relationships, careers, motherhood, aging, illness, and more—written with the humor and grit that proudly sets In The Powder Room apart.
But be forewarned: we’re holding nothing back. We’re revealing our deep dark secrets—because it’s through our most vulnerable and honest moments that we forge the strongest connections and discover we aren’t so alone after all.
You have a gimpy boob? Me too. You think glitter is the herpes of the craft world? Me too! You got your fishnet-clad leg stuck to your head on stage in front of thousands of people? Wait…what? OMG. Tell me everything!
We are your friends, sisters, mothers, and daughters. Regardless of what life has dished up for you, chances are, we’ve been there and we can relate. We’ll help you laugh it off, or hold your hand until you’re ready to laugh again.
And we promise: we’ll always tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth.

You have lipstick on your teeth

This is by far the funniest book I've read in a long time! It should be required reading for all husbands and future husbands because one can learn a great deal from these smart, sophisticated women, all forty of them!

Love this Book

Do you ever wonder what smart, funny women are talking about? Here it is. From grandma’s sex drive to the many uses of tampon string to heartfelt stories about children and partners, this book runs the gamut. It’s well-written, well-edited, and fun to read. Highly recommend.

LOVED This Anthology

What could possibly be better than reading about ONE woman’s gaffes, goofs, slip-ups and faux-pas? How about reading 40 of them? Each one more hilarious than the last. I read this book on a cross-country flight and was laughing so hard, the seats were shaking. My neighbors were wondering what was making me crack up, and I was happy to enlighten them. As editor-in-chief of In The Powder Room, Leslie Marinelli has some of the funniest women bloggers in her writers stable, and she has a real talent for curating the best humor writing across a broad range of topics that feels fresh from first page to last.
