Women's Wicked Wit


Once a girl gets past the age of eight, she knows her deadliest weapon is her tongue. Women’s Wicked Wit: From Jane Austen to Rosanne Barr is a sumptuous selection of 2,000 of women’s most acerbic comments on life, chock-full of quotations from Maria Callas, Cher, Hillary Clinton, Marlene Dietrich, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Fran Lebowitz, Sophia Loren, Madonna, Dolly Parton, Miss Piggy, Joan Rivers, Rita Rudner, Mae West, Oprah Winfrey, Virginia Woolf, and many more. The book proves that when it comes to cutting remarks, the female of the species is indeed deadlier than the male. Softcover, 312 pages.
