Ever had a girlfriend or sister or really any female who talks at you instead of to you, and although she’s funny and even interesting, she doesn’t expect you to add anything to the conversation? Now for fun let’s say that she is also fashion-minded, addicted to TAB, treats her shoes like children and appreciates a good meal.
Well if you enjoy that kind of person I’m sure you will enjoy Gigi Anders’s trip down ex-boyfriend memory lane in Men May Come and Men May Go, but I’ve Still Got my Little Pink Raincoat. Anders takes the reader through several relationships, each associated with an article of clothing, a perfume or a lipstick shade. She is charmingly pathetic as she searches for relationship “cures” through shopping, because who wouldn’t want to propose to a woman who wore an adorable pink raincoat?
Fortunately for those less fashion-friendly, Anders also captivates her readers with mouth-watering descriptions of food. Don’t read this book hungry or right before grocery shopping, but do be tempted to try one of the few recipes she slips in.
Ultimately, Gigi Anders wrote a book about friendship and self-discovery that everyone can appreciate with a few embarrassing stories thrown in to keep us chuckling. If nothing else, you can take away this important lesson: “Lose the guy, keep the lipstick.”
