After falling in love with her writing talents on HBO's Six Feet Under, I decided to delve a little deeper into researching Jill Soloway. After finding out many different bits and bobs about her (including a humorous story she penned entitled "Courtney Cox's Asshole") I discovered her first book: Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants. A book of funny, personal essays, she made me laugh while making me think. It's not as if the book was so scholarly or deep, but there's a small thread sewn between all of her stories characterized by neo-feminism, vague misanthropy and unconventional thinking.
Even though some entries are slow and frivolous (Jill honey, I understand your dislike for dogs, but who the hell cares to hear you rant about it for so many pages?), Ms. Soloway doesn't disappoint with her three year old book.
