A collection of sometimes shocking stories, poems, and one-liners from well-known male writers captures their impressions of what it would be like for them to be a female for day.

What would you do if you suddenly woke up a woman? The bestselling Dick for a Day: What Would You Do If You Had One? was an unprecedented crossover phenomenon, tickling humor fans, impressing gender studies buffs, and winning over readers of all ages. Now, in the interest of equality and fairness, editor Fiona Giles turns the tables, recruiting a varied stable of Y-chromosomed word-smiths to wax playful, erotic, and philosophic about how they would react if they suddenly discovered they had become distinctly female for a day. "Unlike its predecessor," Giles tells us in her introduction, "for this collection it turned out that a day just wasn't enough!" Among this collection's brave contributors are alternative press darling Jonathan Ames, acclaimed novelist Rick Moody, premier British poet Jeremy Reed, Nerve founder Rufus Griscom, and rising star Justin Chin. Many of the contributions are comic, some are cautionary, and others are downright strange; but each, at its core, pays homage to women and their sexuality. Beyond the hilarious leaps of imagination and cleverly spun conceits, Chick for a Day's chief revelation is the way physical transformation into a woman encourages greater insights into the mind and spirit of both sexes. Alternately outrageous and profound, Chick for a Day is an eclectic, unique tribute, loaded with eye-opening reading for men, women -- and everyone in between.
