The Forward Online, May 27, 2010
“Carin Davis gives the type of advice Carrie Bradshaw might give — but with a Jewish twist.”

“A kosher Carrie Bradshaw if there ever was one, Davis explores topics both serious and otherwise.” 
 
J. The Jewish News Weekly of Northern California, 6/17/10
“[LIFE, LOVE, LOX is] a refreshing, kitschy and quick read — think “Sex and the City’s” Carrie Bradshaw meets Charlotte York-Rosenblatt.”

The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, 6/22/10
LIFE, LOVE, LOX is more than just an assortment of singles columns…It’s the Shulchan Aruch (code of Jewish law) meets ‘Sex and the City’.”

American Jewish World, 6/23/10
“A must-have manual for today’s Jewish girls.”

More About the Author

Carin Davis is the author of LIFE, LOVE, LOX: REAL-WORLD ADVICE FOR THE MODERN JEWISH GIRL. (www.lifelovelox.com)

An award-winning singles columnist and feature writer for The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, Carin was first introduced to the plight of the single Jewish girl at age nine, when no one asked her to the B'nai Tikvah Purim Carnival. Brian asked Andrea, Evan asked Rachel, and poor Carin spent the night alone, trying to win a goldfish in a plastic bag. Over the years, she sharpened her social skills slow dancing at Bar Mitzvahs and flirting at AE Phi formals. In 2001, she began sharing her Of Mice and Mensch dating adventures with Jewish Journal readers. In addition to her work in The Journal, Carin's work has appeared in the Huffington Post, on JDATE, and in Jewish newspapers across the country.

Carin graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude from UCLA, with a BA in Communication Studies. Before sundown, she works as the Vice-President of an animation company. In her free time, she hosts Iron Chef: Matzah parties, Torah and Tonic Shabbats, and volunteers with The Jewish Federation. She also volunteers for blind dates, serious relationships, casual relationships, friends with benefits, and girls' nights out. So if you're reading this and know a nice Jewish boy you want to set Carin up with, she is more than happy to meet your cousin Barry for drinks.

Format: Paperback
If Carrie Bradshaw were Jewish, she would have written this book. Luckily, Carin Davis is Jewish, and she HAS written this book!

This book celebrates what fun it can be to be a single Jewish woman, seeking to highlight those aspects of modern Jewish religion and culture that, in some ways, make the world a perfect playground for this demographic. In good fun, the book also offers up some new traditions, such as "Yom Alone" (which celebrates the virtues of "not bringing someone home for the holiday") and the re-Bat Mitzvah (in the spirit of the fact that "Bat Mitzvahs are wasted on the young").

In addition to great story-telling on the adventures of being a single Jewish woman, as well as hilariously clever English/Hebrew/Yiddush wordplays, this book also offers useful substance. It provides a succinct, accessible, and useful overview of Jewish holidays and other cultural traditions. It also includes some delicious recipes throughout (which are also written in a very fun and accessible way) and even a glossary of "Heebonics" at the end.

I already bought this book as a birthday present for a friend--can't wait to give it to her to honor her 30th birthday! This book would also be great for anybody who wants to gain more insights on the cultural aspects of being a single Jewish woman and/or dating Jewish men (at least from one lightheated perspective!). It makes for a very fun read to treat one's own self to as well. Enjoy, and l'chaim!

Carin tells it like it is and makes this book a quick read, but leaves you thinking and laughing out loud. Her "schtick" and delivery is so candid . She makes the material very fun to learn about. I learned more from Carin regarding Jewish customs, holiday foods, etc. than I did after 10 years in Hebrew school. I bought it for my single sister, but much of the book also appealed to me- married with 2 kids!
