Are men afraid of smart, successful women? Why did feminism fizzle? Why are so many of today's women freezing their faces and emotions in an orgy of plasticity? Is "having it all" just a cruel hoax?

In this witty and wide-ranging book, Maureen Dowd looks at the state of the sexual union, raising bold questions and examining everything from economics and politics to pop culture and the "why?" of the Y chromosome. These new writings will delight her devoted readers - and anyone trying to sort out the chaos that occurs when sexes collide.

Maureen Dowd was born in Washington, DC, received a BA in English from Catholic University in 1973, then began her career at the Washington Star. From there she went to Time magazine, then moved to The New York Times in 1986 as a Washington correspondent. She has covered four presidential campaigns and served as a White House correspondent. In 1995 she became a columnist for The New York Times's op-ed page and in 1999 won the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary.

Reviews

“A blistering critique of modern gender relations.”—Salon

“Fun...plenty of style and wit.”—Baltimore Sun

“She'll keep you turning pages...Dowd has a voice that carries.”—People

“No one vets the culture with a keener eye than Dowd.”—Chicago Tribune

“Maureen Dowd has waded into the one topic more controversial than politics: sexual politics.”—Austin American-Statesman

“The New York Times columnist is dizzyingly well-read and well-rounded, with references from Oscar Wilde to Valley of the Dolls. My favorite part was when she casually flund the phrase 'as Carmen Miranda used to say' into a discussion of the Enron scandal...very lively...always entertaining.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“[Dowd] discusses sexual realities and absurdities, doing so with the same verve and nerve with which she handled the other hot-button topic—politics—in her 2004 bestseller, Bushworld...hilarious, cutting, and provocative.”—Booklist

“Readable, provocative, and entertaining.”—*Library Journal Expand reviews
