It's much more than just waxing talk. Each chapter represents a different hat worn by Caren on any given day as a hair removal specialist. The Bikini Waxer -- The Love Doctor -- The Bearded Lady -- The Belle of the Balls, no subject is off limits. From topics that start on the table, Caren gives a personal touch of humor and humility from her own life experiences. She is blunt and no nonsense and she's not afraid to express herself. A trait which keeps her clients coming back time and time again.
Not only funny but sincere and uplifting, this book will leave any female reader with a sense of womanly pride and dynamism.
"As a woman who knows women, I have found that no issue is too big or too small to discuss. We are passionate conversationalists regardless of the subject matter. Whatever the issue may be from finding a new wrinkle or a gray hair to buying a new outfit, dating a jerk, getting a divorce or not knowing what color to paint the damn powder room, it's all important to us - at least for the time it's on the table. Some women look to me for answers. I can only tell them what I would do in certain situations but it's important to tread lightly with some subjects. After all, despite what some may think, I don't have all the answers. Who on this planet does?" ~ Caren A. Stein
Last Saturday while I was hanging out with a group of friends, one gal whose name I'll keep anonymous, announced we had to wait to go bowling until she went poop. Later that evening, she and I stepped outside with another friend and noticed that it had sleeted and snowed heavily while we were inside. Rather than comment on the weather, she starts belting out the words to "Tonight I celebrate my love for you...". It's the kind of girl she is and she's a riot to be around. Wouldn't want her any other way. That's how I imagine the author of Table Talk: Memoirs of a Bikini Waxer to be.
Caren A. Stein is a certified electrologist and a licensed esthetician. She's been in the business for years and has heard and seen a lot. In her memoir, she speaks of her line of work and the things she's come across. However, the book is more than that. Caren tells gems of her own personal life and advice on topics from dating to body hair. My favorite chapter was Sister Superior, where Caren discusses arm hair, male genitalia, and personal hygiene and cleanliness. There are some curse words and vulgarities in the book, which I was okay with, and some uses of God's name in vain, which I wasn't okay with. Each chapter is funnier than the next and by the end of the book, I was chuckling out loud several times.
One person will win a signed paperback book copy of Table Talk: Memoirs of a Bikini Waxer.
