"An exuberant gathering of essays and profiles, representing twenty years of Judith Thurman's writing, particularly her fascination with human vanity, femininity, and "women's work" a term that, in her definition, encompasses haute couture, literature, and ruling empires. The subjects are varied, Cleopatra, Jackie Kennedy, Anne Frank; tofu, performance art, pornography, but as a whole these essays hint at the central preoccupations of a uniquely inquisitive mind."
