As all women know, movies are more than entertainment -- they're self-medication. A good flick is like a soothing tonic that, if administered property, (and in combination with something obscenely high in fat grams), can cure everything from a bad hair day to full-fledged identity crisis.

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.
