Commie Girl in the OC-Book Signing

There will be a  book signing  featuring Rebecca Shoenkof and her new book “Commie Girl in the OC” this Friday, at the Orange Barnes & Noble (791 S. Main St., right across from Main Place Mall), from 6 to 8 p.m.

Acutely funny, scathing and outrageous dispatches from the heartland of consumerism

Commie Girl in the OCIf you thought there was no liberal life left in Orange County, think again. From her operational-base-cum-family-home deep behind enemy lines, Rebecca Schoenkopf risks all to report back on the Versace-decked, Chardonnay-swilling, Humvee-crashing denizens of the twenty-first century’s most evil paradise. Whether stricken with terror at the prospect of a chance encounter with Dick Cheney or puzzling in vain over the philosophical conundrum of taking Arnold Schwarzenegger seriously, Commie Girl’s mordant gaiety in the teeth of the febrile vacancy that threatens to engulf her at every turn will draw gasps of astonishment and admiration from all those who think it really can’t be that bad.

“A masterpiece of social espionage and satirical reportage … She is hugely funny.” – Mike Davis

    Chris. Seriously, is that this evening or next Friday? Please make it clearer in your post (and then probably get rid of all three of these comments)
