New Yorker Cartoonist Liza Donnelly shares a few cartoons from her latest book
What do women want?
The same thing as everyone else: happiness and eternal youth.
Acclaimed New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly charts the bittersweet rites of passage of women through their decades – from the awkward teen years to the crisis of becoming a quarter-lifer to unfortunate wardrobe choices that put the more mature woman at risk of being mistaken for a cougar. With her wry, self-deprecating wit, Donnelly celebrates the fact that laugh lines do come with age – as does invaluable wisdom.
