I picked this up after hearing the musical soundtrack and wanting to learn more. I'm not really into graphic novels but this one does grab you right from the start. I agree with other reviewers that the literary references get a bit pretentious and t ...more

“Some women make it look so easy, the way they cast ambition off like an expensive coat that no longer fits.”

“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

“But now it seems possible that the truth about getting older is that there are fewer and fewer things to make fun of until finally there is nothing you are sure you will never be.”

Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman
