"If the shaking ghosts of Emily Dickinson, William Shakespeare, and Jane Austen could speak right now, they’d be all 'Oh, hoooooney!' as drag superstars Trixie Mattel and Katya rise to the status of literary icons. . . . One of the funniest books of the year."
"The Drag Race superstars have managed to boil down their collective, unmatched charisma to a series of essays—a working mix of satire and earnestness—that offer up advice on beauty, relationships, self-love, and friendship. A somewhat tongue-in-cheek play on the etiquette books of yore, there is no part of this breezy read that isn’t thoroughly engaging."
—The A.V. Club
"RuPaul's Drag Race alumnae Trixie Mattel and Katya deliver an outrageously funny satirical self-help guide that is also smart and insightful... a laugh-out-loud mixture of profane standup and stylish advice writing that rivals Miss Manners at her best. Filled with kooky, brightly colored photos of the outrageous duo, Trixie and Katya's Guide to Modern Womanhood is a visual delight. And the eye-catching design is matched by the smart and zany tongue-in-cheek advice skillfully dispensed by Trixie and Katya."
"Their first book is a satirical guide to life told through essays and conversations that channel their chaotic-in-a-great-way energy. . . . Will you cry-laugh? Yes ma'am."
