HANNAH BARES ALL—THIS TIME ON A BOAT—IN THIRD BOOK, THE SUMMER SEASON
LOS ANGELES, CA, APRIL 19, 2012 – Sex, Life, and Hannah, the juicy woman-on-top book series authored by Dorota Skrzypek, will unveil its third installment at Book Soup in Los Angeles on June 1st. The Summer Season picks up where its predecessors left off, chronicling the exploits of Hannah, a female professional trying desperately to make sense of the L.A. single life. Through broken hearts, broken dreams, and nearly-broken bed frames (yes—there is a lot of sex), Hannah grapples with the modern late-twenty-something’s conundrum: Does the fairytale life exist, and is it worth having?
It seems that Skrzypek’s heroine is not alone in this debate. Cable television is crawling with ladies trapped under this same conundrum—curiously enough also named Hannah. HBO’s new series, Girls, follows newly-graduated protagonist Hannah Horvath as she struggles to support herself in chasing her professional dreams, while learning about love and sex in a cold, technologically-distracted world. Showtime’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl dealt with Hannah Baxter, a college graduate concealing her career choice as a call girl, in a world that advocates more traditional life decisions.
While it may seem like an uncanny coincidence that these women all share a name, it’s not as uncanny that they are all having the same deliberations. Is modern media telling us that the average professional woman is mind-warped over society’s expectations of her?
Sex, Life, and Hannah addresses this question poignantly and humorously, in all forms. An article recently posted to its website blog, entitled “Do Not Be This Girl”, critiques the woman’s typical marriage path with biting candor—and garnered over 12,000 hits as soon as it hit the Internet. Proving that non-traditional courtship can be quite the adventure, the site’s most viewed book excerpt, “Sex in an Airplane Bathroom”, spares no dirty detail of Mile-High-Club induction gone terribly wrong. Sex, Life, and Hannah is acclaimed by audiences as jaw-dropping, frank, and relatable. Writer’s Digest hails it as “an honest, sensitive, and intelligent investigation of the human heart… [with] wit, charm, pathos, and passion.”
