||Hello American Lady Creature|
"I hoped moving to Qatar would change everything. Until it did."
'He pulled me close and said, "Baby, I didn't marry you for your ability to reproduce." I never wanted anything more than to be loved like that.' If only the story ended there. At the heart of this narrative is a magical place and time in history -- Qatar at the turn of the 21st century -- that shaped her own radical transformation.
Told with powerful insight and dark humor. It's the author's first book. LISA KIRCHNER was once simultaneously the dating columnist for an alternative newsweekly, bridal editor for a society rag and the religion reporter for a gay and lesbian newspaper. She lives in New York City.

In advertising, there are mad men. On radio, there are funny men.
Tune In...In 1960s New York, radio is king, and Elkin and Fox are the hottest morning team in town. Jerry Elkin is the funny half -- a genius at dialects and double-talk, zingers and zany characters. Sinatra flies him to Vegas on his private plane, and Rocky Graziano drinks with him (and punches him). But Jerry's life? That's no laughing matter. Secretly, he seethes at his straight-man partner, Ted Fox, a handsome rake who'd rather shtup a secretary in the studio than entertain TV offers, a guy who makes Jerry feel less a star and more a schmuck.
And that's before Jerry ever hears the name Sari Rosenbloom. The stunning eighteen-year-old is a mystical American dream, irresistible to men -- and her most obsessed admirer is Jake, Jerry's son. With the 1960s world spinning out of control, Jake is fighting for a girl who can have anyone she wants -- from the world famous artist who has sketched her nude to bon vivant Ted Fox, who's singing her name on air.
