When Stephanie Klein hit her twenty-fourth birthday, she thought she had everything she could possibly have wanted from life: a good job, a successful husband, a Manhattan apartment and a baby on the way. By the time she hit thirty it was all gone: her husband and her baby lost. She was left to start again with a whole new life and an entirely depleted cast of characters. The 'Husband' had become the 'Wasband' and her only company was her 'Furkid' (the small brown dog she now shared a bed with). Her friend told her to get out dating again and to employ the sandwich principle - keep one man on either side, and enjoy the interesting one in-between. So she set off, with much trepidation and wardrobe anxiety, to discover single sex all over again...The weblog she kept of her new found freedom and sexual adventures became a sensation in the States. Her brilliantly funny, acerbic descriptions of love, life and dating bought her press and acclaim. "Straight up and Dirty" is Stephanie's funnier than comedy, truer than romance, sexier than fiction account of her journey. This has bestseller written all over it, it's sexy, tart and funny - destined to hit the Top Ten in the US and UK.
