Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress by Susan Jane Gilman

Susan Jane Gilman's warm and funny account of growing up a wannabe groovy chick in 1970s and '80s New York is a coming-of-age memoir guaranteed to make you laugh, feel smugly superior and less alone in your life.

From a childhood desperately wanting to be famous to making a fool of herself in front of her teen idol. From dating inappropriate men to gaining street cred as a fake lesbian. And from eager-beaver rookie reporter on a decidedly unglamorous newspaper to tackling the biggest issue of all, The Wedding Dress, Gilman gleefully lays bare her gaucheness, delusions and idealism for our enjoyment.

And Susan's experiences are universal - whether it's coping with mean girls at school, working for a feminist boss who, it turns out, is horrible to the women who work for her, or simply being terminally uncool. Reading like terrific fiction, this entertaining memoir will strike a chord with 20 and 30-something women everywhere.
