Having drifted through thirty-three years of life, Ruby Murphy has put down roots in a rootless place: Coney Island. A recovering alcoholic who is fanatical in her love for animals and her misanthropic friends, Ruby lives above a furniture store and works at the musty Coney Island Museum. One day, Ruby is on the subway heading into Manhattan when the train stalls between stations. An elegant blond woman with a scarred face strikes up a conversation, and a misunderstanding between the two women leads to an offer Ruby decides she can?t refuse. The woman needs her boyfriend followed, and she thinks Ruby is the woman to do it?and do it right. Ruby?s life has been flat and painful lately. The Coney Island Museum isn?t doing much business, Ruby?s live-in boyfriend has moved out, and her best friend Oliver is battling cancer. Ruby agrees to follow the woman?s boyfriend, Frank, a man who works at Belmont Racetrack and seems to hang out in odd places with bad company. Ruby soon finds herself pushed headfirst into horse racing?s seamy underbelly. This is a dangerous world where nothing is as it appears, and people and horses seem to have limited life spans. When Ruby finds herself staring down the barrel of a loaded gun, she begins to have second thoughts. Only now it?s far too late. From the Trade Paperback edition

Diary Of A Mad Housewife : a Novel by Sue Kaufman( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Made into a major motion picture that garnered an Oscar nomination for actress Carrie Snodgrass, Diary of a Mad Housewife is a classic of women's fiction that gave a wry voice to the nascent feminist stirrings of the 1960s and helped incite a revolution in the consciousness of a generation. When Bettina Balser begins to suspect that she is going mad, she starts a secret diary as a form of therapy and as an escape from the boredom and dissatisfaction she experiences as a 1960s housewife. Her fears pour onto the page: "Elevators, subways, bridges, tunnels, high places, low places, tightly enclosed spaces, boats, cars, planes, trains, crowds ..." Through her observations of herself and those around her, Bettina seeks to find meaning in her exceedingly dreary life. Her frank examinations lead to many changes, including an extramarital fling, and her voice touches a timeless nerve, resonating on many levels-from the ever-evolving feminist consciousness to the gnawing existential search that is universal. Diary of a Mad Housewife's humor and insight is as alive and pertinent today as yesterday, and will charm and disarm men and women of any generation
