Lines explores the hysterical evolution of women through the decades-from awkward teen years to Quarter-lifers in crisis to the unmistakable realization that if you're wearing a certain outfit in your 40s, you might be a cougar. With her trademark wry, self-deprecating wit and eye-catching cartoons, Donnelly celebrates the fact that laugh lines do come with age-but so does wisdom. SALES HANDLE Laugh Lines explores the hysterical evolution of women through the decades-from awkward teen years to Quarter-lifers in crisis to the unmistakable realization that if you're wearing a certain outfit in your 40s, you might be a cougar. GORGEOUS, GIFTY PACKAGE Packaged to achieve a lovely, tactile feel-with a beautifully designed interior and jacket-Laugh Lines offers a truly distinctive take on the subject. Donnelly's art is eye-catching and deceptively simple: she captures the sly glance or look of terror with deft strokes, often catching your funny bone by surprise. PERENNIAL TOPIC As proven by Nora Ephron's bestselling I Feel Bad About My Neck, women are clamoring for a poignant, yet humorous take on aging. Laugh Lines delivers this in spades-in a unique, retrospective package. From bad haircuts to bitchy bosses to boring dates, Laugh Lines explores every nook and cranny of modern life-making this the perfect book for both moms and daughters to share and enjoy. It's aging lite-but that might be just the solution to feeling good about yourself.
