Guilty Pleasures : In forty-two funny and forthright essays, Guilty Pleasures recounts the irresistibility of (among other things): therapy and antidepressants, milking parents for cash, marrying money, manipulating the workday to schedule a good nap, and having affairs. Eight "good girls" from St. Louis also satirize their on-and-off addictions to food, eBay, gossiping, buying beads, and the toenail-polish buzz. In Guilty Pleasures, these powerful and funny women explore the wanton, impetuous, reckless, and spontaneous good feelings of giving in to and willfully indulging in impulses and obsessions. The result is a surprisingly honest look at the joys of womanhood and what it takes to be a free and independent spirit.
