A Book for Her

by Bridget Christie
£8.99   paperback  Cornerstone (Arrow Books Ltd) (2016)

A Book for Her by Bridget Christie Bridget Christie is a stand-up comedian, idiot and feminist. On the 30th of April 2012, a man farted in the Women's Studies Section of a bookshop and it changed her life forever.
 
A Book For Her details Christie's twelve years of anonymous toil in the bowels of stand-up comedy and the sudden epiphany that made her, unbelievably, one of the most critically acclaimed British stand-up comedians this decade, drawing together the threads that link a smelly smell in the women's studies section to the global feminist struggle.

Find out how nice Peter Stringfellow's fish tastes, how yoghurt advertising perpetuates rape myths, and how Emily Bronte used a special ladies' pen to write Wuthering Heights.

If you're interested in comedy and feminism, then this is definitely the book for you. If you hate both then I'd probably give it a miss.
