For Allena Hansen, a vicious bear attack was "no biggie" compared to the trauma inflicted by her refined sixties upbringing, stint as Playboy's token intellectual bimbo, and enough cowgirl angst to knock even Job for a loop. A tragicomic collection of latter day Grimm's Fairy Tales, Chomp, Chomp, Chomp: How I Survived a Bear Attack and Other Cautionary Tales introduces Hansen as the smart-assed socialite and full-contact gardener that Hunter S. Thompson once toasted as "the distaff Hunter S. Thompson" and Andrew Breitbart called out as "the coolest person in the room." Offering herself up as a cautionary example, Hansen poses the age-old question, "What makes a survivor?" Listen to this book and remain as puzzled as ever, but as you marvel at her uncompromisingly bad judgment and uncanny resilience, you just might learn something that could save your life.
