Recensione

"Whip-smart...Remarkably comprehensive and enjoyably associative, the essays move quickly from the haunting performances of French actress Isabelle Adjani to The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsBewitched, and I Dream of Jeannie as allegories for the potential of powerful women to 'wreck civilization'...Incisive and witty...these essays will appeal to anyone interested in how women’s stories are told."
—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review
"[Chocano] interweaves relevant personal stories from her childhood and adult experiences with and entertaining and insightful review of female characters from the last 50 years of pop culture, including television, film and literature. Chocano not only looks back at her own experiences, she also writes emotionally about the realities of the world that her young daughter faces today. Each piece combines numerous, well-connected examples from the author’s extensive knowledge of pop culture, with an analysis of a theme related to the various aspects of women’s lives: work, relationships, marriage, sexuality, motherhood, and even math. As a result, the essays have a sound research foundation and are well documented. VERDICT: This entertaining, engaging, enlightening tour of the portrayal of women in pop culture will appeal to general readers and researchers in a variety of cross-disciplinary fields."
LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review
"A sharply perceptive look at the myths that constrain women."
KIRKUS REVIEWS
"You Play the Girl by Carina Chocano blew my mind. Like a goldfish realizing that water existed, I instantly came alive to the air and the atmosphere of how my Otherness informed my girlhood. Each and every message of being asked to stand still so that I could be seen by the cultural product of male-made entertainment made me scream with recognition. In particular, the Flashdance chapter time-travelled me back to my youth, but holding hands with a clear-eyed, brilliant, hilarious friend. Re-looking at Stepford Wives, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched and all of the other hypnotic suggestions about my supposed woman-hood made me feel alive and energized and ready to topple the patriarchy. The world is changing for women and girls and here is one of the first steps—going back to do archaeology about what the heck happened to us, how we got colonized. If information is power, You Play the Girl is a superpower."
—JILL SOLOWAY, writer, director, and creator of "Transparent"
"Carina Chocano is a brilliant thinker, a dazzling stylist and an intellectual in the truest sense of the word. An important critical work as well as an entertaining personal story, You Play the Girl looks at old archetypes in new and often astonishingly insightful ways and establishes Chocano as a unique talent and crucial voice in the cultural conversation."
—MEGHAN DAUM, author of The Unspeakable: And Other Subjects of Discussion
"Carina Chocano unearths the little horrors of our culture's pervasive, insidious sexism in essays so brilliant and witty you'll wish her book would never end. Chocano is one of our sharpest, most original cultural observers, and You Play the Girl is as engrossing as it is unforgettable."
—HEATHER HAVRILESKY, author of How to Be a Person in the World

Praise for Do You Love Me Or Am I Just Paranoid?:

“Chocano's book is unlike any relationship manual you'll ever read: It's intentionally hilarious.”
—Dan Zevin, author of The Day I Turned Uncool
“In our quick-fix, feel-good culture, Carina Chocano provides an indispensable alternative: a guide to living a compromised, turbulent, and pitiably wrong-headed life. Her book is not so much a breath of fresh air as a whiff of something fetid and unseemly that has been left in the refrigerator too long. You will laugh, cry, read it aloud to your inadequate boyfriend, then cry some more. Quite a lot more.”
—Rebecca Mead
