All the world's problems are created, caused, and instigated by pockets. This is a bold statement, we know,
but this pocket volume makes a solid case.
POCKETS: The Problem with Society Is in Women’s Clothing written and
illustrated by Audrey N. Glickman. “We have a pervasive despair: despair for a pocket,
despair about a pocket,” the author proclaims right off the bat. “Seems like everything is
affected by pockets.” (Or the lack thereof.) And it is just as we have become a society rife with
pocket devices, she reminds us. Glickman’s astute, angst-filled, quirky observations are cleverly
enhanced by her illustrations smart and spare as a New Yorker Magazine cartoon. This book is as
original as it gets well-seasoned with spot-on truths that will have you examining every garment,
purse and backpack in your closet. ($14.95)
