Greg is overheard admitting that his girlfriend Steph is no beauty, but that he wouldn't change her for the world. She is devastated; he can't see what he's done wrong. Meanwhile, Greg's friend Kent alternates between boasting about how gorgeous his wife Carlyis and chasing after a hot new colleague. The final part of Neil LaBute's 'beauty trilogy' (following The Shape of Things and Fat Pig) about society's obsession with looks, Reasons to Be Pretty premiered in the UK at the Almeida Theatre, London, in November 2011. '[The Shape of Things] is LaBute's thesis on extreme feminine wiles, as well as a disquisition on how far an artist can go in the name of art . . . Like a chiropractor for the soul, LaBute is looking for realignment, listening for the crack.' Elle 'A heart-warming tale from America's master misanthrope.' Independent on Fat Pig

America is the greatest nation on earth, with an unmatched record of creativity, innovation, scientific advances and sporting sensations. This fact-packed, fun-filled jaunt through the year celebrates all the fantastic achievements of Americans and remembers everything that makes ours a country to be proud of. Which country has won the most Olympic Medals and the most Nobel Prizes? Where were jazz, blues, rap, country and western, and hip-hop first played? Who invented the movies, lasers, cell phones, elevators, the computer you're reading this on and, most importantly, earmuffs? Donuts, hamburgers, hot dogs and Coke may not be healthy, but they sure taste good. And it doesn’t hurt that we produce the world’s highest selling whiskey (Jack Daniel’s) and have the world’s biggest brewery. Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and Jesse Owens turned their sports upside down they were so talented. We even came up with a few new ones: basketball, snowboarding, volleyball, surfing, skateboarding and Frisbee. Who put man on the moon? You know damn well who. This book tells you the true story behind a fantastic American achievement for every day of the year, and adds a little bit of humor as well. So let the following pages fire up your heart, get your patriot’s blood pumping and remember that you are a citizen of the land of the free and the home of the brave. You are an American, be proud!
