What do Meryl Streep, Queen Latifah, Kirsten Dunst, and Susan Sarandon have in common?
a) They’re starlets.
b) They’re better looking than you.
c) They’re die-hard Jersey girls.
C it is.
Up your coastal know-how with Jersey Girls: the Fierce and the Fabulous, which hits shelves today.
The book oozes the humor, design, and taste of authors Barri Leiner Grant and Marie Moss (of M & B Vintage fame). Their mission: to prove there’s more to Jersey than tanning booths by way of artfully laid out interviews and yearbook-esque spreads. Their secret: Don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself.
A glossary cleverly displays pronunciations (mirra, mawl); quotes from Judy Blume and others pay homage to the Garden State; photographs (from Sandra Dee to Kelly Ripa) and interviews (Bebe Neuwirth, Jonathan Adler) reveal a whole new side of New Jersey.
It’s a Shore thing.
