Summary: Since 1998, Miss Abigail's Time Warp Advice (missabigail.com) has provided classic advice for contemporary dilemmas to readers of all ages, from all walks of life. Author Abigail Grotke offers readers a chance to step back in time as she pulls out relevant quotes, tidbits, and words of wisdom from her collection of old advice books in a quest to solve modern-day problems (she has over 1,000 advice books in her library!). The books span a period from 1822 to 1978 and cover the age-old topics of dating, love, living together, marriage, beauty, puberty, and sex. While the language is often quaint and curious, the insights provided remain remarkably fresh. This book takes an affectionate look at how advice throughout the ages is still meaningful today. Combining the best of Miss Abigail's question and answer columns, each chapter features sidebars containing freestanding tips or selections related to chapter topics. Additional material includes short features on selected authors, silly book titles, and entertaining flap copy or jacket material. Retro book covers, advertisements, "chick-lit"-style line drawings, and other amusing, related ephemera serve to illustrate the book.
