Dancing Through Life in a Pair of Broken

Mickey Guisewite, Author, Cathy Guisewite, Author, Cathy Guisewite, Illustrator Bantam Books $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-553-09190-8
The Guisewite sisters, writer Mickey and cartoonist Cathy (author of the comic strip Cathy ), here explore the fears, foibles, embarrassments and pet peeves that even outwardly successful women may harbor. While some of these determinedly humorous essays are less funny than others, women will recognize their own frustrations and applaud the well-aimed broadsides at fashion's fickle specifications for a perfect figure (requiring frantic efforts to conform by diet, exercise, clothes, etc.); ``reality-based'' dolls, including pregnant models; and the perils of owning a car phone. And many will fume along with the authors at the use of romantic, memory-laden songs to advertise cream cheese or a two-ton truck. First serial to Family Circle. (June)
