I had a friend who really wouldn’t let it drop, so I finally read Prozac Nation in 2006 (I’d avoided it for so long). I don’t remember much about the book, except thinking, “If she didn’t look so ‘90s-disaffected good on that cover, this’d never have been published.”

It’s called manic “pixie dream girl” for a reason. She’s young, she’s waifish and spritely, and she has no physical flaws. It’s near-impossible to be her because you’d have to be in the .01% of beauty to start with, and when you get older, the “manic” (stand-in for crazy here I guess in the trope) won’t be funny and Read more

I am 55 and while I was at the perfect age to have been a Wurtzel reader - I never read her book(s). I had a friend who went to Harvard with her and his description (a very good guy) wasn’t all too flattering, but nothing outright mean either.

Someone needs to tell the story about what happens when the beautiful crazy girl becomes the (still) crazy post menopausal woman because that's when shit gets real.

I’ve always felt the same. Like are they seriously thinking they are fooling people into thinking they are younger? Because not only do they NOT look younger, they are altering their appearance which I’m sure was gorgeous before. Blows my mind. And they NEVER look younger FYI.

I’m fascinated by the socialite/rich housewife plastic surgery look. They can’t actually think it looks good. It has to be about showing off that they have the money to do that to their face. Or maybe they’re just so lost in their bubble that they’ve forgotten what human faces are supposed to look like.

Why would anyone want to look like these two gumballs? Neither of them look good, certainly not good enough to spend $50+ on a palette to emulate.
