Reviews

PRAISE FOR BOBBED HAIR AND BATHTUB GIN
"Reading Meade's book is like looking at a photo album while listening to a witty insider reminisce about the images. Her writing is bright, her language charged with gritty details . . . gossipy tidbits . . . and accomplished one-liners."-SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"Stories like these are what made many of our generation long to be writers. Paris! Greenwich Village! Free love! . . . Glamour, and looks, and the sure sense that if we joined that insouciant fraternity/sorority we'd be better than the rest-so much better." -THE WASHINGTON POST
