About this title


I was walking down the street and a homeless person on the corner yelled to me, 'Hey, honey - you having a bad hair day?' Welcome to the wonderful world of Tama Janowitz, New York's wittiest and deader than deadpan social scene chronicler. Littered with idiosyncratic delights and oddities, here are hilarious stories of her eighties blind date club with Andy Warhol; her brief moment of celebrity as an elderly teenage extra in a ZZ Top video; and testing as mentally retarded on an IQ test. Janowitz gives us her unique low-down on hairless dogs and ferrets, babies and Brooklyn, big hair and bad hair days - and survival tips for real life girls. Self-deprecating, funny and often touching, AREA CODE 212 is a sparkling and deeply amusing collection.

From the Back Cover:

"The other day I was walking down the street (again, fully, 100 percent clothed, and when I say 100 percent, that means practically not an inch of exposed skin) and some man on a corner yelled, "You having a bad-hair day! Whoops, I mean you having a bad-hair month! I guess you probably having a bad-hair life!"
- from Area Code 212
