Abs of Steel, Buns of Cinnamon

A Cathy Collection

  The saga of one woman’s quest for romance, career fulfillment, and the perfect bowl of double-fudge ice cream.

  Millions of women have commiserated with America’s favorite frustrated female as she struggles with dieting, work, and romance in a world filled with chocolate, evil bosses, and the ever-present opposite sex. Abs of Steel, Buns of Cinnamon is filled with some of the funniest comic strips that follow every woman’s frazzled friend as she battles everything from the all-too-honest dressing room mirror to a mountainous “IN” box.

  Join Cathy as she rationalizes her way from one neurosis to the next with her trusty dog, Electra, and her aging, well-intentioned mother by her side. You’ll feel right at home curling up with a bowl of Rocky Road as Cathy copes with reality and what creator Cathy Guisewite calls “the four basic guilt groups: food, love, mother, and career.”

About the Author

Cathy Guisewite is the creator of the “Cathy” comic strip which ran daily in nearly 1,400 newspapers from 1976 to 2010. Launched when there were almost no female voices on the comic pages, the strip became a deeply personal touchstone for women wrestling with a changing world. The strip earned Guisewite the National Cartoonist Society Reuben Award in 1992, an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program for the TV special Cathy in 1987, and the high honor of having her work displayed on the fronts of refrigerators across the land, right next to the food.
