THIS WEEK ON INSIDE THE WRITER'S CAFE (Show #1016): SINGLE GIRLS AND MUSICAL FANTASY.
She’s Crazy, He’s A Liar by Cecily Knobler and The Practice Room by Susan Zeidler.
She’s Crazy, He’s A Liar: A Single Girl's Guide To Understanding The Sexes examines the breakdowns that occur in male/female communication. The author of the book, Cecily Knobler, is a stand-up comic, a radio host and humorist based in LA. She writes columns on pop culture, love, sex and relationships for a number of magazines, both online and print. She has just appeared at the prestigious "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Montreal. This book is anything but "the same old thing" about relationships! Cecily brings personal experience and a great sense of humor to a subject that is difficult at best.
The Practice Room, explores an otherworldly, musical voyage of a teenage girl against the background of modern historical events. I really liked this novel. As a matter of fact I just gave it to my across the street neighbor for her daughter, Casey, to read. Susan Zeidler, the author, is such an accomplished individual. She brings not only her talent as a writer and journalist, but also as a musician to this story. The target audience is adolescent, but I enjoyed reading the novel as well. She ties music to recent history in a story of searching and discovery.
