Product Description:

For every girl who marches to the beat of her own drum, Leslie Simon has your manifesto: a smart, expansive, and winningly entertaining celebration of comedy queens, film geeks, bookworms, craft mavens, indie chicks, and other all-star women. Following the breakaway hit book Everybody Hurts, Simon’s energizing look at today’s pop-culture and counterculture heroines—like Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, Sofia Coppola, Regina Spektor, and Jenny Hart—is an empowering, eye-opening, and, above all, fun journey. Readers of The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking and The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life will love joining forces as Geek Girls Unite!

Review:

“Geek Girls Unite is the ultimate guide for any girl who identifies with the geekier side of life. It’s a hilarious must-read look into the modern geek and what makes her so cool!” (comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates)

“While geekdom has long been portrayed in pop culture as a boys’ club, Simon catalogues the wide variety of geek girls in this entertaining look at embracing nonconformity...a worthy endeavor.” (Publishers Weekly)

Tina Fey worshipper Leslie Simon crowdsources media obsessions from a ‘guild’ of like-minded women to assemble this peppy survey of comedy, literary, film and music icons, all the while evangelizing on behalf of misfit females. (Wired.com)
