9781608863280: Original Sins: Trade Secrets of the Femme Fatale

How to do really bad things!

What's a woman to wear when she kills her husband? Or plays her detective for a sap? And ultimately, what's the appropriate ensemble for facing a firing squad?

Who is the femme fatale? Since time began, every culture has obsessed about her; women have wished to be her, and men – the dumb clucks – have connived to control her. Drawing on examples from history to Hollywood, this tongue-in-cheek handbook presents a new appraisal of feminine power: revealing how any woman can lay claim to her fatale birthright and have a hell of a lot of fun doing it.

Original Sins is a guide for the woman who'd rather track her prey than be tied to the tracks.

Review:

"Kim Krizan's book is wickedly funny, razor sharp and immensely entertaining. She gets to the blackened heart of our collective fascination with bad girls and provides extraordinary insight into their lives and psyches both real and fictional. A fascinating, hilarious and surprisingly educational read." --Diane Drake, screenwriter of Only You and What Women Want
