Reviews

"These essays establish Medine as not just a fashion wunderkind, but a clever and engaging storyteller who's not afraid to laugh at herself." --Publisher's Weekly
"In a strong, consistent narrative voice, Medine displays wit, unabashed openness and a knack for weaving seemingly superficial, materialistic details into essays that are rich with sly wisdom and the colorful personalities of family members and friends. Humorous, insightful and sometimes-sparkling essays that will appeal to readers interested in the pure fun of fashion." --Kirkus Reviews
"Not only do I agree with how Leandra dresses, but I also agree with everything she says in these brilliant stories. She's a terrific writer." --Joan Rivers
"Leandra is a sick, twisted fashion addict and guess what? There is no rehab. As this book shows, she is doomed to be stylish and groovy and hilarious for the rest of her life." --Simon Doonan, Barneys New York ambassador and author of The Asylum
"Leandra wears her wit as well as she wears her denim bib overalls. But at being repellent, she is a colossal failure." --Laura Brown, Executive Editor, Harper's BAZAAR
"Through Leandra's growing pains and dating disasters, MAN REPELLER reminds you that your outfit always plays the best supporting role in your life." --Kelly Oxford, New York Times bestselling author of Everything is Perfect When You're a Liar
"A classic love story of a girl and her clothes, Leandra Medine's MAN REPELLER is as funny, smart, and adorable as she is." --Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author
"...the utterly likable Medine comes across vividly and sincerely in writing what she loves." --Booklist
