    G is for Genuine ¿ a witty and hilarious book on vice by Gina Barreca and Nicole Hollander. I is for Insatiable ¿ both authors¿ thirst and talent for uncovering the nuances and humorous truths about women¿s intimate secrets, everyday habits and complicated needs. N is for Nursing ¿ which is what you¿re going to be doing to your sides from laughing so hard, and¿ A is for Again and again and again! You can¿t read this just once. Learning your ABCs never felt soooo goood! My friends and I laughed and snorted and guffawed ¿ this book is wickedly funny and astonishingly accurate. Whoever said that vice was something to be ashamed of never had the pleasure of reading this little gem. E for Excellent.
