Life’s A Bitch
Roberta Gregory
Fantagraphics Books
$16.95 US (Paperback)
*** 1/2 (out of five)

In just 272 pages, Roberta Gregory can make a woman realize her life’s not so bad and a man glad he’s not a woman.
With this first collection of her Bitchy Bitch stories, originally published in the infamous Naughty Bits comics, Gregory shows the daily trials and tribulations of the average woman … well maybe not average.
Her character, Bitchy (or Midge if you prefer), is a foul-mouthed, rage-filled seether, frustrated with her insipid co-workers, her demanding mother, her sex life, her periods and practically everything else around her.
Often funny and identifiable for those firmly entrenched in office life, Life’s A Bitch also tackles some headier issues such as gay rights, abortion and molestation.
