The latest addition to the best-selling Wild Women series, Wild Women Talk About Love is like having a heart-to-heart with 200 of your closest friends. Loquacious ladies of every stripe unleash their wicked wit in this humorous and enlightening compilation and tell it like it is. Chapters include 'Love Is Fabulous,' 'Love Is a Pain,' 'Love Lost,' 'Are Men Really Necessary' and cover sex, personal ads, blind dates, break ups, weddings, and the prerequisites for the perfect kiss. Sidebars include 'Size Matters,' and 'Weepiest Romantic Movies Ever.' Wait, there's more true tales about wild women of yore that entertain as much as they enlighten.

From the book:
I'm single, I'm skinny. I still can't find a man." -Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

"Men are my hobby; if I ever got married, I'd have to give it up." -Mae West

"Life is a quest and love a quarrel." -Edna St. Vincent Millay

From Lily Tomlin to Dorothy Allison, Elizabeth Taylor to Annie Dillard, there's no shortage of sass, sarcasm, or sizzle. Find out, once and for all, what women talk about when they talk about love.
