My life in 9 pictures


I was raised in this redbrick school house in Indiana.

I've been a cheerleader all my life.


And been crowned quite a bit.

I became a journalist and wrote for ESQUIRE and OUTSIDE, published a bunch of books, and became the first woman to walk from Telefomin in Papua New Guinea, across the Star Mountains to the border of Irian Jaya.

I wrote the "Ask E. Jean" column in ELLE for

27 years before I was fired.  It was a gas! I loved

it! I also had the "Ask E. Jean" TV show.  Loved that too!


I've had two husbands, 19 dogs, lived 9 lives and now 

I'm having a hell of a great time  writing for The Atlantic , Vanity Fair 

and New York. 

Wait. I see that is only 6 pictures.  So here's my cat,

Vagina T. Fireball wearing her anti-bird-killing collar.

And.....thanks to my brilliant attorney, Robbie Kaplan,
I am the first person to hold Donald Trump liable for his
lies since he became president.
