Katya Zamolodchikova is a woman in her early forties looking to fall in love in the next three to five weeks. She lives in Los Angeles with her ex-husband, Glen, and her four beautiful daughters. This is her second book.
"While the book...is characteristically filthy and funny, it does contain a surprising amount of legitimately useful career advice. Or perhaps not so surprising, considering these two advisors have forged some of the most successful and versatile post-Drag Race careers." —The Hollywood Reporter
"In this hysterical sequel to Trixie and Katya’s Guide to Modern Womanhood, the drag queens pontificate on finding success in the professional world... This bawdy manual slays." —Publishers Weekly

"Trixie and Katya...are polished, clever writers and, with every book, gain a stronger foothold on Miss Manners's throne. They offer outrageously funny advice that is often surprisingly thoughtful and practical.... Albert Sanchez and Pedro Zalba's vibrant photographs are a visual treat.
