9781573241076: Loose Cannons: Devastating Dish from the World's Wildest Women

A celebration and showcase of female movers and shakers throughout history at their chatty, catty and viciously verbal best. This latest in the series of Wild Women quotation books include entries from Meg Ryan, Mata Hari, Bette Midler, Ophra Winfrey, Catherine the Great, and many others. These strong but never silent women prove beyond doubt that no force of nature ever prevented a fiercely opinionated female from making her point. Other titles in the series include Wild Women and Wild Women in the White House.

Review:

In her snappy compendium Wild Women, Autumn Stephens showed what a good punchy quote can do to enliven a dull day. Whether you're looking for ammunition to aim between a rival's ears or just fishing for pithy phrases to amuse yourself, her collection Loose Cannons should supply you with several statements you wouldn't mind tattooing on a prominent spot. Questioning whether endless dieting is really the route to self-esteem? "You're not fat, you're in the wrong country," plus-size model Denise Walker says flatly. Looking for the brighter side of a romance gone south? "It's like magic," marvels humorist Merrill Markoe. "When you live by yourself, all your annoying habits are gone." Wondering what happened to your ship? "I rang for ice, but this is ridiculous," a Titanic survivor is reputed to have said in a quote that is surely apocryphal. Annoyingly arch references to the women quoted take away some of the fun, but the book is a hoot overall.

Book Description Conari Press,U.S., United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A companion to Wild Women (80,000 copies sold) and Wild Words from Wild Women (50,000 copies sold), Loose Cannons is sure to liberate your laughter as princesses and prostitutes, satirists and shot putters, literati and glitterati, movie stars and supermodels, radical reformers and race car drivers -- wild women of every stripe -- get to have their say in this exuberant compendium of wicked words. In this delicious and provocative collection of sensational quotes, verbal virtuoso Autumn Stephens shares hundreds of the zingiest one-liners (and okay, some two-liners as well) ever uttered by woman -- plus just the right amount of her own delightfully illuminating commentary.Strong? You bet. Silent? Never. From the notorious fifteenth century widow Lucrezia Borgia ( My husbands have been very unlucky ) to her twentieth century soulmate Lorena Bobbitt ( He doesn t wait for me to have an orgasm . so I pull(ed) back the sheets and then I did it ), no force of nature has ever prevented a fiercely opinionated female from making her point. These flank and feisty females include: Meg Ryan, Mata Hari, Bette Midler, Martina Navritalova, Oprah Winfrey, and Catherine the Great to name just a few. Entertaining, inspiring, and subtly subversive, Loose Cannons showcases female movers and shakers throughout history at their chatty, catty and viciously verbal best!.
