A series of humorous essays on parenting and modern life, from a former child star hailed as “Erma Bombeck with an edge” (USA Today).
Meet Quinn Cummings. Former child star, mother, and modern woman, she just wants to be a good person. Quinn grew up in Los Angeles, a city whose patron saint would be a sixteen-year-old with a gold card and two trips to rehab under her belt. Quinn does crossword puzzles, eats lentils without being forced, and longs to wear a scarf without looking like a Camp Fire Girl. And she tries very hard to be the Adult—the one everybody calls for a ride to the airport—but somehow she always comes up short.
In Notes from the Underwire, Quinn’s smart and hilarious debut, she tackles the domestic and the delightfully absurd, proving that all too often they’re one and the same. From fighting off a catnip-addled cat to mortal conflict with a sewing machine, Quinn provides insight into her often chaotic, seldom-perfect universe—a universe made even less perfect when the goofy smile of past celebrity shows its occasional fang. The book, like the author herself, is good hearted, keenly observant, and funny. In other words, really good company.
“Quinn Cummings is a master story-teller and her book is nothing short of delightful. Her insights into topics like celebrity, parenting, and cats with a taste for homicide are pithy and uproarious and not to be missed. Notes from the Underwire is charming, hilarious, and just snarky enough to be ultimately satisfying.” —Jen Lancaster, bestselling author of Bitter Is the New Black and Such a Pretty Fat
