Three Fallen Women

Contrary to popular belief, that title does not refer to Renee, Jay and me, or what happened to us on our summer vacation. Rather, THREE FALLEN WOMEN is a new book recommended to us by our great friend and supporter in Chicago, Leah Jones, whose other friend, Amy Guth, has just published. Leah speaks very highly of Amy, and since Leah also speaks very highly of us (or so she says), we're inclined to take this recommendation and run with it.

We're also inclined to run with a rec. of a book we haven't actually read, because look at how cute Amy's author photo is! Oh, and she's also been published in The Believer, Monkeybicycle, Hungry, Chicago?, Four Magazine, The Complete Meal and PerformInk Magazine. And if that weren't enough, she writes "Eleuthromaniac," a monthly socio-feminist column for Outcry Magazine, and despite the fact that I know not what eleuthromaniacs nor socio-feminists are, both scare me in that "I'm scared but am still willing/excited to touch it" sort of way. (Don't pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about.)

There's a ton of information about Amy (with more pics!)and her book on her website, which makes a great deal of sense to us. So help a fallen woman out (and yes, now I'm referring to me), and hop on over to her site, buy her book and tell all your friends about it!

I can vouch for all the fallen women involved! Both books are wonderful (although totally different) and all involved writers kick ass.

Actually, both books do have a graphic novel portion to them, so maybe they aren't so different. And both do have some friend/lover tension. And both involve New York.

And paper.
