Merrill Joan Gerber: Merrill Joan Gerber has published over a dozen titles including the award-winning King of the World and The Kingdom of Brooklyn. She resides in Pasadena, CA having taught at Cal Tech.
No one but the astonishing Merrill Joan Gerber could have written this wonderful and wicked novel. Her heroine undergoes a painful. and perhaps unnecessary, hysterectomy, and yet you'll find yourself laughing hysterically (pun intended) throughout this eloquent black comedy. It is both derisively written and deeply felt. Male gynecologists may have removed the narrator's uterus and one of her ovaries, but it is Gerber's sharp eyes, wit, and tongue that dissect these doctors for our delectation. I relished every page of this provocative novel and each step of the waltz.
