The girl that he marries : a novel by Rhoda Lerman( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A wickedly funny comedy of erotic manners" (The Atlantic), with a foreword by Phyllis Rose Outrageous and outrageously funny, The Girl That He Marries is a swift satiric jab at love and romance, a novel that gets right to the heart of the modern man/woman relationship. It is the story of Stephanie--nearly thirty and still single, a bright and attractive young woman with an unerring instinct for unmarriageable men and a nagging fear she's going to grow old alone. Enter Richard: urbane, ambitious, and eminently marriageable. The adored son of an adoring mother, Richard has been adroitly manipulating people all his life. He's especially adroit at the game of love. Before she knows it, Stephanie is hooked on Richard's games. But before Richard knows it, Stephanie has figured out the rules--and very soon is beating him at his own artful game. In the process, she twists herself into the girl he would marry--and becomes a very different woman. The trouble is, as Stephanie finds out too late, when you play the mating game, you risk getting stuck with the prize. Beneath its comic absurdities, The Girl That He Marries unpacks the deceptions of romance and tells a cautionary tale--for Stephanie is every woman who has reached that dangerous age where uncertainty and fear fuse with pop romantic notions, submerging integrity, and a sense of self

The shelf : from LEQ to LES by Phyllis Rose( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phyllis Rose embarks on a grand literary experiment--to read her way through a random shelf of library books, LEQ-LES. Can you have an Extreme Adventure in a library? Phyllis Rose casts herself into the wilds of an Upper East Side lending library in an effort to do just that. Hoping to explore the "real ground of literature, " she reads her way through a somewhat randomly chosen shelf of fiction, from LEQ to LES. The shelf has everything Rose could wish for--a classic she has not read, a remarkable variety of authors, and a range of literary styles. The early nineteenth-century Russian classic A Hero of Our Time by Mikhail Lermontov is spine by spine with The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. Stories of French Canadian farmers sit beside those about aristocratic Austrians. California detective novels abut a picaresque novel from the seventeenth century. There are several novels by a wonderful, funny, contemporary novelist who has turned to raising dogs because of the tepid response to her work. In The Shelf, Rose investigates the books on her shelf with exuberance, candor, and wit while pondering the many questions her experiment raises and measuring her discoveries against her own inner shelf--those texts that accompany us through life. 'Fairly sure that no one in the history of the world has read exactly this series of novels, ' she sustains a sense of excitement as she creates a refreshingly original and generous portrait of the literary enterprise"
