In "Sometimes Ask A Man," standup comic, comedy writer and author Traci Skene hilariously skewers traditional social and sexual mores as well as modern feminism. Using the bestselling woman's self-help book, "Always Ask A Man" by Arlene Dahl as a jumping-off point, Skene calls for a ceasefire, a truce, an end to hostilities in the war between the genders. She was born just minutes after the publication of Dahl's book, which hit the stands just months after Betty Friedan's "Feminine Mystique" started feminism's second wave-- and she's been caught in the cross-current ever since. Fortunately for her readers, she's dealt with the wrenching societal changes with perspective, aplomb and a wicked sense of humor.
