Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2019 - Humor - 240 pages
A snarky guide to life inspired by the most underrated character onSex and the City, from the creators of the Instagram sensation @everyoutfitonSATC

WhenSex and the City premiered, many were hesitant to identify as the Miranda of their social circle--after all, sarcasm, workaholism, and dubious fashion choices are rarely considered aspirational. However, in the two-plus decades since her television debut, our culture has finally caught up with this forward-thinking icon and all she represents. The truth is, Miranda Hobbes is the feminist hero that we deserve-- we were all just too busy obsessing over Carrie's corset tops to notice it at first.

WE SHOULD ALL BE MIRANDAS is a celebration of a certain redheaded lawyer and the legions of fans who relate to her pragmatic, no-bullshit approach to work, love, and sex. Written by two self-proclaimed Mirandas, this humorous manifesto distills Ms. Hobbes' core principles into a strategic guide for navigating life's inevitable ups and downs. In it, you'll learn to:
  • Overcome your internalized Mirandaphobia
  • Cope with humiliating sexual encounters
  • Make Google Docs your bitch
  • Dump that Skipper that you've been dating
  • Embrace your bad hair days
...and so much more!

With sharp, sardonic humor and fantastic send-ups to the series' most iconic moments,We Should All Be Mirandas is the perfect gift for fashionistas, pop culture mavens, and every woman who has dared to eat cake out of the garbage.
