About this title

Synopsis:

When Jill Soloway was just thirteen, she and her best friend donned the tightest satin pants they could find, poufed up their hair and squeezed into Candies heels, then headed to downtown Chicago in search of their one-and-only true loves forever: the members of whichever rock band was touring through town. Never mind that both girls still had braces, coke-bottle-thick glasses and had only just bought their first bras...they were fabulous, they felt beautiful, they were "tiny ladies in shiny pants."Now that Jill is all grown up and a successful writer and producer, she can look back on her tiny self and share her shiny tales with fondness, absurdity and obsessive-compulsive attention to even the most embarrassing details. From the highly personal (conflating her own loss of virginity and the Kobe Bryant accusations), to the political (what she has in common with Monica and Chandra), to the outrageously Los Angelean (why women wear huge diamonds and what they must do to get them), "Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants" is a genre-defying combination of personal essay and memoir, or a hilarious, unruly and unapologetic evaluation of society, religion, sex, love, and -- best of all -- Jill.

About the Author:

Jill Soloway is a comedian, playwright, feminist, Emmy-nominated TV writer and award-winning director. She was a writer for Six Feet Under for four seasons, after coming to the attention of Alan Ball when he read her short story `Courtney Cox's Asshole' (originally written as a joke for a friend). She is also the creator and writer of Transparent, inspired by her father when he came out as transgender. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons.
