Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Popular radio personality and cookie enthusiast Lisa Glasberg shares the story of her difficult road to emotional maturity and intimacy, her career trajectory from a teenage internship at WLIR in Long Island to the Howard Stern Show, and the cookie recipes she devised along the way. Glasberg recounts amusing anecdotes about losing her virginity, sneaking into the Rolling Stones' hotel, and delivering cookies wearing nothing but a fur coat to a man she didn't even like. One of her favorite jobs was the morning show at Hot 97 with Doctor Dré and Ed Lover where she met a slew of hip-hop stars and regularly received late night phone calls from an incarcerated Flavor Flav. Glasberg explains her habit of breaking up healthy relationships and pursuing unavailable men, viewing "decency and niceness as weakness" until she finally sought out a therapist to learn how to handle conflict and vulnerability. (She took her first steps toward truly loving something by adopting a kitten.) The cookie recipes are closely associated to the subject matter, including Gingerbread Men you can "decorate to resemble your exes", and she provides secrets to successfully hosting a "cookie party". Glasberg's story is refreshingly honest and will strike a chord with other "late bloomers" who have struggled with romantic relationships. (June)
