About The Book

Cynthia Heimel has been described by the Chicago Tribune as “perhaps our funniest war correspondent on the war between the sexes.

This collection is vintage Heimel and reminds us how much we truly need her to guide us through the maelstrom of our times. Where else can a woman find such expert dating advice as: ‘my new rule is to never believe a person is interested until you feel his tongue down your throat.” Get Your Tongue Out of My Mouth, I’m Kissing You Good-bye shows Heimel at her wicked best. She is our downtown Dorothy Parker, and an antidote to this absurd world for smart, sane women.

Praise

“She’s your best friend, Jewish mother and analyst, with a better sense of humor than the three combined.” –USA Today

“Like Dorothy Parker, Ms. Heimel is an urban romantic with a scathing X-ray vision that penetrates her most deeply cherished fantasies.” –The New York Times

“Although Heimel is frequently compared to Dorothy Parker, her cheeky takes on urban life have actually created a neo-feminist genre of their own. . . . She renews your faith in the importance of foulmouthed, strong-minded women.” –Entertainment Weekly
