Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While these books seem similar in subject, one is a celebration of female friendships, and the other is an exploration of both the beauty and the problems of those relationships. Neuburger, creator of a popular sleepwear line, has collected stories and insights from women who have attended her marketing "pajama parties" in malls, hotel ballrooms, and offices across the country. She prescribes the need for certain personalities in one's circle of friends, or "broad squad," and shares the recipes, crafts, and ceremonies that women use to celebrate their friendships. It's cute fluff; an optional purchase for most libraries. Psychotherapist Annechild (Your Man and His Mother) explains why women feel closer to their girlfriends than to anyone else in their lives. Based on conversations with more than 100 women, her book collects findings and advice to help readers monitor the health of their own friendships, address conflict, and stay connected during life changes. The section on building a relationship with one's daughter is particularly helpful. Recommended for most public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Karen Neuburger's lifelong quest for comfort led her to shed the corporate dress code of her fashion career, shred her pantyhose, toss her pumps, and create her famous comfy, cozy pajamas that are so soft, they feel "like a big old hug." Karen has a national following of customers who will sleep only in her namesake creations. She is also known for throwing thousands of pajama parties across the country: in stores, in offices, even in airplanes. Karen has literally been "in bed" with thousands of women and has gained valuable insight into their lives and the girlfriend relationships that sustain them. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.

    A PJ Party in a Book

    This book is a ton of fun. I am a huge fan of Karen Neuburger's and have attended several of her famous PJ parties. This book reminded me of one of her parties- festive, funny, and spunky. I loved it!
