About the Author

JACK FRITSCHER'S 400 published short stories and feature articles have appeared in more than 25 magazines and in several anthologies of "Best-of-the-Year" stories. Of his 5 books of fiction, his best-selling novel, Some Dance to Remember, has been named a classic comparable to novels by Gore Vidal and James Baldwin, and yet is popular enough that critics have called it "the gay Gone with the Wind." His newest collection of fiction is Rainbow County and Other Stories; his new novel is the romantic comedy The Geography of Women. He is also the author of 4 nonfiction books, including the scandalous Mapplethorpe: Assault with a Deadly Camera; Love and Death in Tennessee Williams, his doctoral dissertation; the Anton LaVey centered Popular Witchcraft; and the media-savvy Television Today. He is a founding member of the American Popular Culture Association, and has taught creative writing for more than fifteen years at university. He is the recipient of both a Michigan Grant to the Arts and a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. His coffee-table photography book, published in England and titled Jack Fritscher's American Men, is a completely progressive kind of photo art, because his pictures (each one a titled short story) are of actual American males with none of the usual coffee-table pics of haute models leaning in shadows holding hula-hoops. He is a deeply established artist who is writer, photographer, and video director whose work reflects sexuality, intellect, and real life lived in American popular culture.

The Geography of Women is a wonderful book, and compleatly engrossing. The only thing that tops Jack's amazing writting is his absolutely charming personality. I highly reccomend this novel to anyone who wihes to escaoe thier reality for a few hours. . .

Format: Paperback
When it comes to the American novel of the "sawth" with women drawling out their best dialog, quips, and wisdom, this funny little novel has more storytelling power, plot, and dialog than most, and doesn't let its gals (2 white, 1 black)turn into stereotypes. It's as good, if not better than fried green tomatoes with the Ya Ya's, and both of those books are something wonderful indeed in their own right.

this book is dreadful! the jargon and accent is overwhelming. the plot and characters are poorly developed. the first half of the story is little more than soft core porn. definitely not worth the ttime or the money.
