"A laugh on every page, Christina Oxenberg is one of the most lethal wits of the western world." -- Robert F. Kennedy Jr."Oxenberg's musings on local culture suggests a style that hints of Tom Wolfe, but with the detached wry and dry observation of Joan Didion, tossed with more than a splash of charming, classy, self deprecating amusing neurotica that is all her own."-- Dale Launer "My Cousin Vinny", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels""Christina Oxenberg is not only the hottest but also the edgiest writer to emerge this year. Don't miss the thrill of reading her new book."--Edward J. Epstein "The Hollywood Economist: The Hidden Financial Reality Behind the Movies""Oxenberg has always scandalized polite society- she is, after all, the daughter of a royal princess- and has chosen to live in the manner of her writing: outrageously, ironically, comically at times, but fearlessly brave and above all true and fresh."-- Taki Theodoracopulos"Do These Gloves Make My Ass Look Fat?" is Christina Oxenberg's third book assembling essays and articles on various situations such as accidentally going on a date with Steve Martin, living in the shadow of her older famous sister who starred in "Dynasty", going on a bike ride with Dan Aykroyd, venturing into a bondage and S&M Club, loosing her childhood best friend, and creating her own fashion wool line. It's been thirteen years since the release of her last novel "Royal Blue" and Oxenberg's ready for a brilliant comeback with her new collection of articles and essays featuring work published in "The London Sunday Times Magazine", "Allure Magazine", "Penthouse Magazine", "Tatler Magazine", "Salon.com" and more.
