Review:

It's unlikely that you've ever sat in your chair thinking, "You know, what the world REALLY needs is a tongue-in-cheek collection of classic literature as rewritten from a modern, slightly New Age-y, pro-female perspective." But darn it, the writing in Frankly Scarlett, I Do Give a Damn! is good, and these days that quality alone is enough to merit buying it.

From Beverly West and Nancy Peske's version of Wuthering Heights: "What should have been a naturally unfolding, free exchange between equals dedicated to plumbing the depths of their sensual natures was thwarted by a misunderstanding borne of the rigid social mores of the time, which did not value strong-headed heroines with a capacity for multiple orgasms ... 'Oh, Nelly, what should I do? It is Heathcliff I love. It is Heathcliff who knows where my G-spot is.'" You get the picture. Frankly Scarlett is a nice little book--it's not too ambitious, but is adeptly done. Maybe if you buy it, the authors will push themselves a little more next time.

From the Publisher:

The authors of Meditations for Men Who Do Next to Nothing (and Would Like to Do Even Less) team up once again for a collection of retellings of 13 classic romances--an irresistible little book that does for love stories what Politically Correct Bedtime Stories did for fairy tales.
