10 Grealy, Lucy As Seen on TV (Provocations)
New York B;oomsbury 2000 1582341532 / 9781582341538 Softcover Near Fine

Whether she is contemplating promiscuity or" The New Testament," lamenting about what she should have said to Oprah, or learning to tango, Grealy seduces and surprises the reader at every turn. With the sheer brilliance of her imagination, Grealy leads us on delightful journeys with her wit, unflinching honesty and peerless intelligence. "As Seen On TV" breaks the mould of the essay, and is destined, like the memoir that preceded it, to become a modern classic.
