Abstract:

A hilarious, bittersweet, politically acute survival guide. In collected columns and routines Clinton gleefully details personal coping techniques tested over a lifetime. They're perfectly suited for political and cultural upheaval: wildcatting for democracy, curbing your cynicism, and changing the climate. Read them and you'll never be voted off the island. She spans refreshingly disparate topics: sexual hypocrisy and gay marriage; 9/11 and its aftermath; girls gone wild and boys gone to war; Hillary Clinton and U.S. politics; baptism and waterboarding; as well as intelligent design and body shows; P-town and families of choice; and even bee colony and other collapses. As a humorist for over twenty-five years, Clinton believes that making light--light enough to see and light enough to move--is what sustains us. What unites the essays is a Möbius strip of humor intended not to dissipate outrage but rather to motivate action.--From publisher description.
