My Granddaughter Has Fleas!!by Cathy Guisewite
"You don't have to be female, young, and unmarried to appreciate the humor of Cathy Guisewite. Cartoon Cathy suffers and enjoys the hassles of relationships, careers, and an attempt at domesticity. She has a mother to placate. Don't we all? She has problems. Don't we all? But the problems just seem so much easier to face when we peek at Cathy's comic strip." --Oakland Press, Pontiac, Mich.
"For many single women, Cathy is like a best friend...No matter what we're going through, it's a safe bet that Cathy's going through it with us." --Elkhart (Ind.) Truth
"Her cartoons are enough to make one laugh out loud, as page after page of contradictions and rationalizations capture the life and hard times of the single woman." --Lansing (Mich.) State Journal
Cathy chronicles the demands of a "thirtysomething" career woman responding to the complexities and contradictions in our everyday lives. Like so many women, she struggles with frustrations involving the "four basic guilt groups"--food, career, mother, and relationships. Always trying to do her best, Cathy finds her alternatives are clearly conflicting: Be aggressive, be submissive; be ambitious, be demure; eat healthy, eat happy; act caring, act nonchalant...No wonder Cathy's confused!
