Описание

What do women want? Eternal happiness and eternal youth would be nice. Failing that, what about a good laugh? Like I Feel Bad About My Neck come to life on the page, When Do They Serve the Wine? explores the evolution of women through their lives and crises (physical, emotional, sartorial): the awkward teen years; the crisis of becoming a quarter-lifer; the unmistakable realization that if you're wearing a certain outfit in your forties, you might be a cougar. With her trademark wry, self-deprecating wit, and 140 eye-catching cartoons, the New Yorker's Liza Donnelly celebrates the fact that laugh lines do come with ageand so does wisdom.

We met while submitting work to The New Yorker and, as we became professional cartoonists, we also became friends. We have seen each other through many aspects of life as a woman: dating and boyfriends; building careers from scratch; weddings, husbands, and marriages; getting and being pregnant; living the single life in the city, living the family life in the burbs; seeing our kids speed from preschool through college; and beyond.

I still remember my first visit to the cartoon department of The New Yorker quite well. You didn’t just walk in there. You had to be invited by Lee Lorenz, the art editor at that time. Unknown cartoon-ists dropped off their work with the woman manning the little glass-enclosed booth on the 20th floor. If you were invited to show your work, she buzzed you in, and you got to go back to the cartoon offices. The first office is where the editor, Lee Lorenz, worked. Next there was a small office for his assistant, Anne Hall. The third room was where the cartoonists sat
