REVIEW: Friends to Keep in Art and Life by Nicole Tersigni
Pairing classical paintings with funny, irreverent captions, Nicole Tersigni honors all sorts of sacred female friendships and the miscellaneous nonsense that brings women closer together. Focusing on five major friend types (the Work Friend, the Nurturing Friend, the Hide a Body for You Friend, the Up for Anything Friend, and the Super Honest Friend), Tersigni’s meme-style humor perfectly captures all of the weird-but-special, intimate, cherished, and often laugh-out-loud moments that define female friendship.
BESTSELLING AUTHOR: Nicole Tersigni broke the Internet with her first book, the hit success Men to Avoid in Art and Life based on her hysterical Twitter feed. Still packed with the same whip-smart humor, Friends to Keep in Art and Life celebrates wholesome female friendships in a loving way.
I found this second book of Tersigni’s more amusing than laugh out loud funny. The Work Friend who regretfully tells you what you emailed to the boss, The Nurturing Friend who reaffirms how good a mother you are and volunteers to babysit even though all your children are biters, The Hide a Body Friend who threatens to put itching powder in your ex’s underwear while helping you clean your stuff out of his apartment, The Up for Anything Friend who staggers out of the dance class with you, The Honest Friend who offers to tell you what that dress really looks like – but only if you want to hear plus great artwork. This book has is all. Here’s to friendship and art in a cute coffee table book. B
“I keep praying for love and it’s not working.”
“I’m going to get you a vibrator.”
“You know what would make this even better?”
“Check my bag. I got you girl.”
