With her finger on the comedy of the sexes,
Liza Donnelly introduces her new cartoon collection by revealing secrets: “This is the humor that in previous decades we had to keep to ourselves, that we confined to groups of women.”Not anymore.It is with great pleasure that Narrative Library announces the release of Liza Donnelly’s latest book, WOMEN ON MEN.In courtship, dating, sex, and marriage, Donnelly finds the humor in our illusions, self-deceptions, posturings, and earnest yearning for each other. Her graceful ability to portray our hearts’ desires has made her a welcome speaker at the United Nations, a cultural envoy to the Middle East, and a contributor to TED talks. Her work as a world-renowned cartoonist also led her to help
found Cartooning for Peace.
Women on Men is an insightful, timely look at women and men in an age when the old conventional gender roles are falling away and new ones are being discovered and defined—women wisely taking the lead. As thoughtful as it is funny, Women on Men can be read as satire, provocation, aphrodisiac, love song and lament. Read at random or from front to back, it is sure to delight all who open its bright pages and find themselves in Liza Donnelly’s world.
