Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.
And, look, I’m not going to tell you that you have to read it but I am going to say that you should. Why? Because (1) if you already hate me, it will fuel those emotions, thus making you a more passionate individual than you were previously. (2) There are stories about all kinds of weird things like seer sucker bermuda shorts and the ankle length white socks I forgot to take off the first time I engaged in sexual intercourse.
Also, these folks have some nice things to say about it, too:
“the utterly likable Medine comes across vividly and sincerely in writing what she loves.” –Booklist
“In a strong, consistent narrative voice, Medine displays wit, unabashed openness and a knack for weaving seemingly superficial, materialistic details into essays that are rich with sly wisdom and the colorful personalities of family members and friends. Humorous, insightful and sometimes-sparkling essays that will appeal to readers interested in the pure fun of fashion.” —Kirkus Reviews
“These essays establish Medine as not just a fashion wunderkind, but a clever and engaging storyteller who’s not afraid to laugh at herself.” —Publisher’s Weekly
“Not only do I agree with how Leandra dresses, but I also agree with everything she says in these brilliant stories. She’s a terrific writer.” –Joan Rivers
“Leandra is a sick, twisted fashion addict and guess what? There is no rehab. As this book shows, she is doomed to be stylish and groovy and hilarious for the rest of her life.” –Simon Doonan, Barneys New York ambassador and author of The Asylum
“Leandra wears her wit as well as she wears her denim bib overalls. But at being repellent, she is a colossal failure.” –Laura Brown, Executive Editor, Harper’s BAZAAR
“Through Leandra’s growing pains and dating disasters, MAN REPELLER reminds you that your outfit always plays the best supporting role in your life.” –Kelly Oxford, New York Times bestselling author of Everything is Perfect When You’re a Liar
“A classic love story of a girl and her clothes, Leandra Medine’s MAN REPELLER is as funny, smart, and adorable as she is.” –Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author
