Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bernhard ( Confessions of a Pretty Lady ) is a multi-talented performer who has had a special on HBO, acted in films ( King of Comedy and Without You I'm Nothing ), has a recurring role on the popular Roseanne sitcom, and has posed nude for Playboy . Unfortunately, her talents don't transport themselves to book form. This odd, haphazard collection of self-indulgent "essays" (some just half a page long) and poems tries to depict the frustration of relationships in the '90s--sexual, yet barren and unfulfilling. Before long, through repetition and banality, the pieces focus mainly on sex--not love--and become odes to fellatio, cunnilingus and innumerable scatological poses. Playing with the ambiguity of her own sexual preference, Bernhard introduces us to characters like Jackie and Alison, unhappy lesbians; we witness Bernhard's seduction of Casey, a blonde woman who is described as having a pierced navel; and are let in on Bernhard's sexual fantasies about actress Diane Keaton. The reader also gets to digest endless meals with the author and plot mindless seductions of women and men alike. And Bernhard's sentence constructions are of a piece with their content: "I am now back in my room after using the Bidet as usual and then freshening up after. I love being able to wash my butt after a long hot night."

From Kirkus Reviews

Actress and stand-up comic Bernhard (Confessions of a Pretty Lady, 1988) acts up again with an occasionally recumbent but always ardent performance. Less cohesive than fervid, this collection of jottings contains autobiographical snippets, fictional sketches, and miscellany. Starting with a splash of petulant lesbianism and a lot of dreams, the text surveys the subject of love--all kinds of funky love, with puffy lips and swollen privates: AC/DC, cool and hot, bicoastal and bisexual. Bernhard's beat covers 2 Live Crew, Pucci, druggies, and the world capitals of London, Paris, and Las Vegas, and in between the naughty bits are sweet thoughts of family and friends. Readers who know the author only from her diluted--but still outr‚--persona on TV's Roseanne may be shocked; the comedienne's longtime fans will take all this in stride, and with pleasure. The book is dedicated to Bernhard's grandmother. (First printing of 35,000) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

I think I was 15 when I picked this up from a used book store somewhere. Since then, it's had many a note scribbled here and there as it's been passed on to family and friends. This was my first exposure to Bernhard and it was well worth it. The excerpts(?) are at times funny or downright hilarious. Other times they take on a melancholic air, but there's always a profound meaning somewhere in there. Though her note to girls trying to get into the Hollywood scene is a bit outdated now (as posted in Cosmo in the 80's), it's still great fun to read. Not a book to be read once and abandoned on a shelf; while I had it, it was a great distraction from my own life once in a while. If you like random thoughts and ideas, or just seeing into another person's life/mind, you've got to grab this book. (Out-of-print or not!)

Sandra is a wonderful writer--obviously strongly influenced by the anecdotal style and devastating epigrams of The Philsophy of Andy Warhol. Jet black comedy about crash-and-burn romances, which acts as a perverse pick-me-up that will keep you cackling for hours!

This has to be one of the most inane books I've ever read
