American Thighs by Jill Conner Browne


Whether young enough to look "hot" or of the age to only feel that way (in flashes with buckets of sweat), every woman has given, or will give, ample thought to preserving her best "assets" (thighs included), so that the dread transition from "cute girl" to "ma'am" won't be quite so unsettling.

Here are stories of growing up and learning about life—usually the hard way! From disastrous haircuts and color jobs to fashion or verbal faux pas committed, from the kiss wished for but never gotten to the one that should have been skipped, these are the moments that mark each of our journeys from what we thought back then to what we now know. Since to say that Youth is wasted on the Young has got to be the understatement of all time, it falls upon Browne, as one older and wiser, to take a "Hit and Run" down Memory Lane for the sake of offering "Asset-Preserving Tips," with astonishing disclosures about:

  • Why women have risked their lives just to get a little bit blonder.
  • How the muumuu has been fashionably resurrected as the "patio dress."
  • Why it's important to always have a good photo of yourself on hand—just in case.
  • How, no matter what skin you're in, to make it last a lifetime.
  • Why you can never trust anyone over eighty-five.

Review by Rose Thornton:

American Thighs is another hilarious book written by Jill Conner Browne that will give its reader many good laughs as well a thorough education in womanly assets and how to preserve them. Browne’s unique and charming way of getting her point across gives life to yet another insightful book. Although written primarily for the encouragement and entertainment of women, many men will also find this book enjoyable for its light side and eye-opening revelations. I can recommend to both, but definitely for adult ages.
