Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0836217616, Paperback)

"Cathy Guisewite draws for every woman besieged by the colliding demands of bosses, boyfriends (or their lack), and a mother who longingly brandishes a copy of Brides Magazine." --Life

Distaff women across America look in the mirror every day--and see CATHY! Cartoonist Cathy Guisewite, it seems, has been peeking at our daily feats and foibles, and the result is the eminently recognizable, career woman who tackles everything strewn in her path with realism and aplomb--and a sense of humor we all wish we had!

Cathy's battles are familiar: Happily embarking on a new diet plan, she goes to the video store to rent Fat Busters, Butt Busters, Abs of Steel, Buns of Steel, Lean Legs and Buns, Trim Tummy and Thighs, Thighs, Tums and Bums--and runs into erstwhile boyfriend Irving. She tries, once and for all, to organize her office, finally answering the letter that's at the bottom of the stack: "Dear Mr. Cooper, Your letter of two years ago has been designated an historic landmark." Her sweet bespectacled mom interrupts Cathy during a frantic day at work, knowing full well that "For every perfectly timed annoying interruption, there's a half-hour guilt-follow-up call to come."

Cathy's life is filled with other characters who keep her hopping, shopping, and mopping: her faithful puppy Electra; her newlywed co-worker Charlene; Andrea, her upwardly mobile friend, mother of Zenith and Gus and now a permanent temp in Cathy's office; and Cathy's boss Mr. Pinkley. Together, they fill Cathy's life with challenges, changes, and choices--in a consistently amusing series.

Cathy Guisewite is a seriously funny cartoonist whose strip has won numerous awards. Cathy Guisewite says she draws herself--but fans personally relate to her ability to juggle life's challenges with style and wit.
