This is a book that examines everything from the history of adultery and revenge to the genetic make-up of someone who desires retribution to how the Internet has put a new spin on vengeance. Experts weigh in on the subject, famous personalities offer first-hand observations, and real people share their personal stories.
But this is also a book that suggests a variety of ways of putting a cap on vengeful thoughts and finding ways of feeling satisfied enough to move on.
“Eva Nagorski’s The Down and Dirty Dish on Revenge is the non-fiction love child of The First Wives’ Club and The Godfather–a fast, funny, anecdote-filled treatise on executing and enjoying revenge.” – Lynn Schnurnberger, co-author of The Botox Diaries and Mine Are Spectacular!
“A savage and intoxicating brew of a book about revenge. Somehow it lifts the spirits.”
– Bruce Jay Friedman, author of Three Balconies—stories and a novella, About Harry Towns and Sexual Pensees
“Whether you're fantasizing or downright serious about getting back at the scum-bucket in your life, Eva Nagorski's The Down and Dirty Dish on Revenge offers all the inspiration you'll need to orchestrate the most devious and satisfying of paybacks."
– Karen Quinn, author of The Ivy Chronicles and Holly Would Dream
“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - unless it’s a man who’s been dumped for someone younger, richer and better-looking. Eva Nagorski explains why even the most gentle of lovers suddenly turn into members of La Cosa Nostra the moment they’re given the elbow.” – Toby Young, author of How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
"Eva Nagorski's book is witty and an easy read. I laughed out loud through many parts of the book and you will too. This book is full of hilarious tips on revenge." – Stephany Alexander, author of Sex, Lies & the Internet and Founder/CEO of WomanSavers.com FREE Date Screening Service
“...a tongue-in-cheek guide to achieving vigilante justice for relationships gone bad... Nagorski handles all the angles, taking a historical-cultural look at methods for dealing with marital transgressions... tales of recent celebrity breakups, chapters devoted to payback songs and movies. Jilted women may find her barbed thesis on heartbreak—thinking about revenge can be as satisfying as exacting it—cathartic and a bit comforting...”
“It’s a how-to for anyone who’s ever been down in the jowls after a little heartbreak... And luckily, since the “Internet has put a new spin on vengeance,” there now are more creative ways of seeking revenge than ever before (nude pictures, anyone?). Nagorski... has even included a history of adultery and a wide array of expert opinion.”
“Breezy and snazzy, The Down and Dirty Dish on Revenge does a lot with what seems on the surface to be a thin premise. ...Nagorski looks at revenge in literature, through history, and across different cultures, with almost a sociologist’s eye. She peppers the book with real-life anecdotes of revenge both creative and mean-spirited. And she closes the book with a chapter on the virtues of forgiveness as the best revenge of all.”
“The book... vacillates between outlandish stories to commentary by academics on the merits and dangers of getting revenge. Imagine a melange of self-help (the “Revenger Quiz” gauges your level and style of vindictiveness), satire (a recipe for “the cold dish of revenge” includes “one hot thong he’ll never see you in”), history and psychology, written in the tone of a chick-lit novel.”
“...Using hilarious anecdotes...Nagorski’s book is filled with opportunities for readers to learn something new and laugh out loud in the process... [the book] serves as an uplifting, comical guide through what can often be a frustrating and confusing time. But you don’t need to be actively plotting revenge in order to appreciate this book. With such a wildly entertaining look at the many faces of revenge, just about anybody will get a kick out of these recipes for revenge... Nagorski did a great job of putting a humorous spin on the topic of revenge.”
“The book reads superbly… this is a collection of stories that are tightly written, humorous and, as much as possible, with a lesson... The women in Nagorski’s book go through life lightly and freely…for them revenge is a cleansing shower.”
