Within months of Jezebel.com’s 2007 debut, fans of the cutting-edge website for women dubbed themselves “Jezzies”and organized meet-ups all over the world. By 2008, Jezzies’ devotion warranted a New York Times feature story, and parody blogs and copycat websites popped up everywhere. Now, with contributions from the writers and creative types who give the site its distinctive tone and influence, The Book of Jezebel offers an encyclopedia of everything important to the modern woman. Editor Anna Holmes and Seattle writer Lindy West (formerly of The Stranger and lately famous for a debate over rape jokes—and the unbelievable response to it) pore over pop culture, feminism, fashion, and sex from A (Abzug, Bella) to Z (zits!).
