Sedaris-like essays."
~Kirkus

The Woman Who is Always Tan


"Need something sweet and frothy...to tote along with you on the school run? I recommend The Woman Who is Always Tan and Has a Flat Stomach by Lauren Allison and Lisa Perry. These gals take aim at the crazy moms in our midst---from the perfect brownie troop leader to the competitive hostesses among in our midst." ~ Mom Trends.com

"The authors use an appealing mix of hyperbole and self-deprecating humor, and the result is an enjoyable, laugh-out-loud funny book" ~ Mom Central


From Chapter 1

The perfect"What's been your troop motto, Lauren?" the Perfect Brownie Leader asked.

I said with pride, "Our troop motto is, 'You Can Marry More Money in One Minute Than You Can Make in a Lifetime!'"

The Perfect Brownie looked horrified. She said, "Well, OUR motto is: 'Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You, Ask What You Can Do For Your Country.'"

I slunk down in my chair. I thought I'd change the subject so I asked "What day of the week shall we meet?"

She said, "Mondays won't work because I'm involved with the United Nations Middle East Peace talks every Monday."

I couldn't believe how much fun I was having.


"Touché, Misses Allison and Perry, Touché." ~ Oklahoma Gazette

people everyone secretly hates."
