Move over, Martha! No one knows how to party like a Wild Woman. She can bring home the bacon, fry it up, and entertain you all at the same time. Part how-to, part history, and 100 percent hilarious, Wild Women Throw a Party is the gift book of the season.

Master chef and co-author of the wildly popular Wild Women in the Kitchen, Lynette Shirk has stirred up a best-selling batch of stories, anecdotes, historical facts, recipes, and favorite foods inspired by well-known Wild Women--from Dorothy Parker to Sarah Jessica Parker--and you are invited to a celebration of famed femmes and recipes for fun based on their stories. Let's party like it's 1929 with Jazz-Age babe Zelda Fitzgerald! Highlights include Dorothy Parker's Cocktail Party, Silver Screen Queens' Oscar Night, Joan Crawford's Mother's Day "Mommy Dearest" Breakfast, and Mary Pickford's Picnic at Pickfair. And nothing beats Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede. But you might want to try the Better Than a Spaghetti Western Pasta Pajama Party, in homage to Sophia Loren.

Who knew that dangerous debutante Peggy Guggenheim, famous for her arty party salons, was also a gifted gourmet? Or that when Eleanor Roosevelt wasn't serving at soup kitchens, she was throwing and attending the most elegant "do's" around. From Dollywood to Hollywood, these dazzling dames and sassy sauciers know how to sling spaghetti, toss any salad, and dish up the desserts.

Features 15 black-and-white photos of famous Wild Women and a fun, colorful design.
