Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Gonick, who writes a column for San Francisco Focus magazine, here presents a collection of essays on life as a single woman today. Laser-sharp, comic and poignant descriptions of the unattached female's search for a male partner should create empathy in readers of both sexes. The book's sections follow a romance through looking for, finding and living with a lover, until the affair breaks up and the bereft woman tries to recover from her angst. Gonick is uncommonly entertaining as a recorder of female ``networking'' (i.e., making contact with promising men) and forays into health clubs and other modern meeting grounds where ideal mates might be waiting. Clearly a good man now is harder than ever to find or keep. First serial to McCall's and New Woman. (May 2)
Library Journal
San Francisco writer Gonick has put together a collection of humorous es says on the state of being single in the 1980s, presumably based on her own experiences. She has divided these pieces into large categories``Look ing,'' ``Together,'' ``Breaking Up,'' and ``Alone''on which she then elaborates. She scrutinizes such sub jects as being a victim of fashion, mar ried men posing as swingers, match making, playing second-fiddle to a boyfriend's dog, contact lenses, going out dancing alone, and other dating dilemmas, disasters, and triumphs. These pieces are often hilarious; at the very least the reader will chuckle with recognition as Gonick beautifully characterizes being a single woman living alone in the big city. For most public libraries. Rosellen Brewer, Monterey Cty. Lib., Seaside, Cal.
