The most bitterly funny, fantastically furious book to explode out of the #metoo movement. –Dani Shapiro

FESTIVAL BOOK

What Do We Need Men For?

<p class="Body75105BooksBios"><span lang="EN-US">When E. Jean Carroll realized that Ask E. Jean’s eight million fans seemed to have one thing in common – problems caused by men – she hit the road. Crisscrossing the country with Lewis Carroll, her blue-haired poodle, she stopped in every town named after a woman between Eden, Vermont and Tallulah, Louisiana to ask women the crucial question: What do we need men for?</span></p>
<p class="Body75105BooksBios"><span lang="EN-US">Carroll intertwines the stories of the fascinating people she meets on her road trip with her “horrible history with the male sex” (including mafia bosses, media titans, boyfriends, husbands, a serial killer, and a president), creating a decidedly dark yet hopeful, hilarious, and thrilling narrative that will shock men and delight women.</span></p>
