Female Problems: An Unhelpful Guide

1995, undated later edition, from Dell
Nicole Hollander
Female Problems: An Unhelpful Guide
Original price $9.95, purchase price 49 cents
Worn paperback

This is not a guide as such.  It's a mix of cartoons (some of them seeming to be left over from the '80s) and short humorous essays on, well, female problems.  (The cartoon accompanying "Guys Who Are Almost Perfect," with the woman who has a vampire boyfriend, is now ironic considering the swooning of women in real life over Edward Cullen.)  The book is very mildly amusing, nothing classic.  And I don't own Hollander's more recent books, all apparently about cats, so another of my authors bids goodbye as of 1995.
