$14 in the Bank and a $200 Face in My Purse gives a delightfully funny yet honest look at the single career woman's life. Cathy, the character who has given a voice to the anxieties and triumphs of modern women, is a must-read in newspapers worldwide. In this collection, Cathy has broken up with long-time beau Irving. She keeps busy binging on chocolate and fighting deadline pressures at the office-but Cathy's not too busy to explore modern methods of meeting men: by fax and through bachelor auctions. When her dog Electra gets depressed, the canine psychologist prescribes a visit with Irving to pep up the pup. Imagine Cathy's surprise when Irving reappears thirty pounds overweight. And her dismay and resentment over the next few weeks as the weight melts off him effortlessly.

Bad perms, bad dates, fights with the insurance company, shopping, and mother all take their toll in $14 in the Bank and a $200 Face in My Purse. Cathy has a uniquely funny way of coping with life, and her millions of fans count on Cathy to put their shared experiences in a humorous light.
