En este ensayo, la novelista Alison Lurie pretende desentranar todo aquello que pregonan nuestras vestimentas y conformar con ello una tesis enormemente seductora: los cambios en las modas se producen, no al dictado de los disenadores, sino en respuesta a los mismos deseos y necesidades que afectan a los otros lenguajes. A partir de ahi, la autora examina ropas e indumentarias, y extrae de ellas informacion o desinformacion sobre gustos, profesiones, procedencias geograficas, personalidades, opiniones, deseos sexuales e incluso estados de animo. La conclusion es un libro que obligara a quien lo lea a pensarselo dos veces antes de ponerse cualquier cosa.

About the author (1994)

Alison Lurie, 1926 - Novelist Alison Lurie was born September 3, 1926 in Chicago, Illinois to Harry and Bernice Stewart Lurie. Her father was a Latvian-born teacher, scholar and socialist who founded the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds. She received an A.B. from Radcliffe College in 1947. Lurie was married to Jonathan Bishop for 37 years and had three sons, and then married Edward Hower, a novelist and professor. After finishing college, Lurie worked as an editorial assistant for Oxford University Press in New York, wanting to make a living as a writer. After years of receiving rejection slips, she devoted herself to raising her children. Lurie had taught at Cornell University since 1968, becoming a full professor in 1976 specializing in folklore and children's literature. Lurie's first novel was "Love and Friendship" (1962) and its characters were modeled on friends and colleagues. Afterwards, she published "The Nowhere City" (1965), "Imaginary Friends" (1967), "The War Between the Tates" (1974), which tells of the collapse of a perfect marriage between a professor and his wife, "Only Children" (1979), and "The Truth About Lorin Jones" (1988). "Foreign Affairs" (1984) won the Pulitzer Prize and tells the story of two academics in England that learn more about love than scholarship.
