Suck it, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek

Olivia Munn, with Mac Montandon. St. Martin's, $23.99 (288) ISBN 978-0-312-59105-2
Munn, co-host of Attack of the Show! and fantasy for nerd-boys everywhere, pens a comic-memoir of her usually absurd, sometimes sad, often hilarious experiences. She writes of her childhood in a Japanese military school and a preppy Oklahoma high school, the time she peed her pants in school, shady Hollywood agents, and a few firsts (boyfriend, casting call, house party). Munn, a self-proclaimed nerd, peppers her book with nerd trivia and wisdom, from the moral lessons of Star Wars and Princess Lea tweets to fan art from Comic-Con. Don't be fooled by Munn's nerd love though; her book is surprisingly sexual, even considering her status as a geek sex-symbol. We hear her advice on dating, making love, her Playboy photo-shoot (clothed, no less), and the bizarre, perverse, and hysterical sexual antics of the Hollywood elite. She also describes the infamous costumes she wears on her show, from the eponymous Wonder Woman to the French nursemaid outfit she had on when she leapt into a massive pie. Munn's irreverent wit runs throughout, making it a must-read for geeks or anyone just looking for a laugh. Photos. (July)
