Submitter: Recently my colleague showed me her copy of [this book] and I immediately thought of your website. When I looked at the cover I thought it was a cougar training manual. What’s written inside is just as precious as the cover. It seems that Ellen Peck was a younger version of Helen Gurley Brown and even includes some of Gurley Brown’s recipes for breakfast beverages for when you feel gaggy.
Holly: Hippest? Grooviest? Oh boy. I am cracking up at the cougar training manual bit – the woman (teenage girl??) on the cover does look rather old to be picking up teenage boys, doesn’t she? Or is that Ellen Peck herself on the cover?
