    Title: Book for Her
    Author: CHRISTIE BRIDGET


    Bridget Christie is a stand-up comedian, idiot and feminist. On the 30th of April 2012, a man farted in the Womenâe(tm)s Studies Section of a bookshop and it changed her life forever.


    A Book For Her details Christieâe(tm)s twelve years of anonymous toil in the bowels of stand-up comedy and the sudden epiphany that made her, unbelievably, one of the most critically acclaimed British stand-up comedians this decade, drawing together the threads that link a smelly smell in the womenâe(tm)s studies section to the global feminist struggle.


    Find out how nice Peter Stringfellowâe(tm)s fish tastes, how yoghurt advertising perpetuates rape myths, and how Emily Bronte used a special ladiesâe(tm) pen to write Wuthering Heights.


    If youâe(tm)re interested in comedy and feminism, then this is definitely the book for you. If you hate both then Iâe(tm)d probably give it a miss.


    âeoeChristie is adept at turning on a sixpence between being comical, or serious, or both at once, and at pricking her own earnestness.âe Telegraph


    âe~Christie piles derision and tomfoolery upon everyday sexism, while never pretending that jokes alone will solve the problem.âe(tm) Guardian
