Booklist Review

If you mixed Roz Chast's pixilated urban sensibility (see Mondo Boxo, Booklist 84:818 Ja 15 88) with the jaded feminism of Nicole (``Sylvia'') Hollander, then injected a dose of Cynthia (Girl's Guide to Chaos, 84:823 Ja 15 88) Heimel's horny chick comedy, you'd have a cartoonist like Libby Reid. But why create substitutes when the real thing's available in this sassy collection? In separate sections, Reid explains such ``Mysteries of the Universe'' as ``What's in the Refrigerator?'', advises activities (like ``Effective Tortures for Siblings'') for ``The Wonder Years'' (childhood), advances ``Cosmetics as a Reason to Live'' (``hypnotize the calories out of your favorite foods''), considers ``Those Wacky Urban Perils'' (roaches, answering machines, contraceptives, guilt, celibacy), and finally proffers ``A Survivor's Guide to the Love Wars'' (``Can You Qualify for Virginity Re-certification?''). Alongside her energetically frazzled cartoon heroines, the smart remarks sparkle all the brighter. She's one hip, hilarious, totally feminine graphic humorist.
