Big cans, drunk texts, crying, good sex, coconut oil, female shares, eating your feelings: Monica Heisey’s Grown-Ass Woman’s Guide will go down as the most hilarious column ever published on Shedoesthecity. It’s no wonder that the beloved columnist landed herself a book deal. Inspired by the GAWGs and other brilliant scribblings, like “Barfing On a Plane,” I Can’t Believe It’s Not Better is a coping guide for life, and it’s the only one that Lena Dunham wants to read. Yep, you read that correctly.
The creator and star of GIRLS, has praised it as “the only humour book I ever want to own … it made me keel over with laughter.” So, like, if we haven’t convinced you that you need this #lifeguide, maybe Lena will?
Beyond being funny, Monica’s writing is totally relatable, painstakingly honest and wickedly smart. She grabs hold of all the crap that we obsess over and twists it in a way that makes it both a critique of our culture, as well as a social commentary of #modernlife. She conveys the genuine anxiety we have about issues, both legit (“Grown-Ass Woman’s Guide to Dips”) and ridiculous (“Grown-Ass Woman’s Guide to Sexy Selfies”).
Monica, congrats from all of us at Shedoesthecity, past and present. You make us damn proud and we can’t wait to see where your talents land you next.
Available now on Amazon.com and everywhere else as of May 13th.
