The world is full of books and magazines about how to live your life and how to improve it that never quite deliver. Nina de la Mer's mission is to tell it like it is to all women who consider themselves modern maidens. 178 x 111 mm 160pp Her brilliant, savvy guide to living in the real world is a refreshing treat. Discussing all of life's vital issues, she gives us the low-down on everything from love, sex, drugs and alcohol to careers, money, plastic surgery, pregnancy, birth and the aftermath with truly refreshing honesty, wisdom and lots of sparkling, sassy humour. 'Cosy up with a copy of the excellent wit and wisdom of Nina de la Mer's the Modern Maiden's Handbook, a book which, in the sparkiest, sparkliest prose possible posits the notion that the only thing wrong with modern life is too little feminism rather than too much. Refreshingly, Ms de la Mer understands that looking on the bright side of life is not simple-minded, that a smile costs less than a frown and that being a misanthropic misery bucket doesn't make you a sensitive genius, but rather a highly avoidable bore.' - Julie Burchill
