What do women want? Eternal happiness and eternal youth would be nice. Failing that, what about a good laugh? Like I Feel Bad About My Neck come to life on the page, When Do They Serve the Wine? explores the evolution of women through their lives and crises (physical, emotional, sartorial): the awkward teen years; the crisis of becoming a quarter-lifer; the unmistakable realization that if you're wearing a certain outfit in your forties, you might be a cougar. With her trademark wry, self-deprecating wit, and 140 eye-catching cartoons, the New Yorker's Liza Donnelly celebrates the fact that laugh lines do come with ageand so does wisdom.

Review: When Do They Serve the Wine?: The Folly, Flexibility, and Fun of Being a Woman

User Review  - Jonnie - Goodreads

It wasn't really a book; it was more of collection of illustrations with a synopsis of each decade that a woman passes through. Some illustrations and comments were dead-on and did make me chuckle. I guess it was worth $0.99. If I had paid anymore than that, though, I would have been dissatisfied. Read full review

Not what I expected at all. Some cartoons were funny but wasn't what I wanted. Read full review
