Overview

Now that you’re a mature woman, you’re smart enough to know that . . .a tight ponytail can take five years off your face. More bright, brassy opinions from the fountain of truth!

From the author of Not Guilty by Reason of Menopause comes another unapologetically feisty manifesto. Laugh Lines Are Beautiful celebrates everything from the dubious benefits of maturity, moderation, and perky mammaries to the singular pleasures of mood swings, mammograms, and myopia. In comedienne Leigh Anne Jasheway-Bryant’s pasture, there are no sacred cows. Growing older (and hopefully, wiser) with style and sass and a slightly sagging posterior trumps investing in anti-aging goo, inflatable face and body parts, and ill-fitting foundation garments any day. So why age gracefully when having a midlife crisis feels so good?

Read an Excerpt

Now that you’re a “mature” woman, you’re smart enough to know. . .

If you were going to turn into your mother, you would have done it by now.

Nothing makes you look firmer and less wrinkled than walking a Sharpei.

When your hair starts to get kinky, your sex life should too.

“Have you lost weight?” is always a good conversation starter.

“Who are you again?” is always a good conversation ender.

You still look twenty-something. From the back. At night. In the fog.

If you wear heels and pearls to do housework, you need your meds adjusted.

It’s silly to long for a washboard stomach when you have a dashboard stomach–soft and padded, with a built-in air bag.

Mood swings are a great excuse for getting people at work to leave you alone.

Superwoman undoubtedly does drugs.
