margaret atwood tells of a survey in which groups of men & women were each asked what they feared most about the other sex. The women were afraid they would be killed.

Obviously not truly unabridged--there're strips that I remember which aren't in this tome. But the most comprehensive version I have. I suppose I'll have to try to get some of the short collections. If I only knew where they were sold...

I'm hesitant to review here because the actual book I read was written by Diane Mott Davidson but for some reason her name would not come up. Same title - wrong author. I love Davidson's books and did enjoy this latest one. However it did drag on a little more that her usual and I think was a little slow toward the end. I thought I had read her entire culinary series but realize I have one more earlier one to read so - checked it out!
