Guilty Pleasures is a hilarious collection of 21 essays recounting the irresistibility of (among others): o Therapy and Antidepressantso Milking Parents for Casho Marrying Moneyo How to Prepare for and Secure the Perfect Daytime Napo TVo Having AffairsEight Midwestern women also satirize their on-and-off addictions to food, eBay, toenail polish, gossiping, buying beads, and baby talk.
