That’s not entirely true. I started off as a publicist. And before that, a waitress at IHOP. And before that –well, I’m going to save this “resume of failure” for later so please be patient. As a novelist, I often “fictionalized” events in my life that led me to call my particular kind of fiction writing “faction” — fiction based on fact. My next book, Failure: A Love Story, then, will be my first attempt at “non-faction” — non-fiction based on fact.
What’s not to love? Sitting around all day in fake yoga pants writing about people you have known and things that have happened to you and then quickly changing a bunch of details before anyone has a chance to sue you. But after publishing four “factional” novels something unexpected happened: I got tired of beating around the bush.
She Got ‘Old Cow’ Disease
Actors including Camryn Manheim, Calista Flockhart, and Jodie Foster, by adoption or by birth, placed single motherhood in the national spotlight, gracing the covers of Us and People magazine. And the character Rachel from the hit television series Friends, upon finding herself unexpectantly pregnant, decided to have her baby alone; it’s the child she wants, not necessarily the husband. Given the public acceptance of these notable single mothers by choice, it would seem that this version of the new millennium family has found a suitable home in the United States.
Yet one only needs to consider insurance policies, which frequently state that reproductive technologies will only be covered if a woman uses her own husband’s sperm, to see that Manheim, Flockhart, and Foster provide the exceptions rather than the rule.

May Some novels leave you wishing you knew people as cool as the characters. Who didn’t want to slip back in time to befriend the wise and witty Elizabeth Bennett after reading Pride and Prejudice? But best-selling author Laura Zigman’s new novel Her will more likely leave you thanking your lucky stars that you don’t know anyone quite like the neurotic bride-to-be Elise.
Her is a sharp, hilarious chronicle of the months leading up to Elise’s wedding. The invitations are ordered, the caterer booked. Then Donald’s impossibly perfect ex, Adrienne, moves to town and Elise’s inner jealousy invades. Elise finds herself scrolling through Donald’s cell phone calls at 2 a. Most of this is understandable.
After all, it is her, the trust fund uber-woman in designer clothes. With a flashy museum job and a brilliant Yale professor father who studied Albert Einstein’s brain, Adrienne is a formidable presence.
Ticked off with the biological clock
March 14, I have started so many books since my last post and have only completed one. I tried to read Louisa by Simone Zelitch. But only read pages. Thats my limit if I am not wanting to pick the book up anymore. This story was about a mother and her daughter-in-law both survivors of the Holocaust. Maybe I just didn’t want to read another Holocaust book.
(Northbrook Public Library, IL): Author, title, summary for over 35 book about the single life, from Karl Ackerman’s The Patron Saint of Unmarried Women to Laura Zigman’s Dating Big Bird, plus a list of 12 videos on the same theme.
Who says Romance has to be serious? Love and laughter can be a great combination. Cutting Loose When the heiress of a house she has just inherited hires a contractor to restore it, she finds that the he manages to irritate her completely. But her irritation soon has a new element to it — lust. Feet First There is an instant attraction between a shoe designer and the Vice President of the company who makes it clear she is not wife material. Will having one hot affair in life be enough for her?
True Love and Other Disasters A young widow who knows nothing about hockey inherits a professional team from her husband and is resented by members of the organization especially the captain.

Jasmine Black has enormous boobs and like to masturbate
Yes, she spent 10 years working in publishing in New York. Yes, her novels are zeitgeisty, mood-tapping, issue-driven and slot perfectly into the current trend for single thirtysomething women’s concerns. You can’t write something just because you think it’s going to sell. When I wrote Animal Husbandry I had just been dumped, so I was inspired to write a novel about rejection.

Ellen Franck is one of them. She is 35, loves her niece to bits and cannot wait to have a child of her own. Only problem is, she has no man in her life – at least not one who is willing to commit and actually be a father to her child. Ellen does not let this get her down. A well written book and a good read for women in all stages of life. A very emotional story and definitely one of the better biographies I have read.
In this book the reader truly gets to know the woman Celine Dion, and not just the star. Everything goes as planned until he decides to help his family’s former maid, Mrs. Her son is certain that the money is not meant for buying his mother a new house but for something a lot more sinister. At the same time Martin falls in love with Francesca, who turns out to be married with a small daughter.
Powell’s The war between the sexes gets a fresh interpretation in Zigman’s witty and entertaining first novel. Her conceit–using the mating habits of the animal kingdom to explain male courting behavior and female responses–makes for rollicking fun. Even if it flags somewhat in the novel’s last third, her story of a woman ardently pursued and wooed, then unceremoniously dumped, carries emotional clout.

The last house she worked at was Knopf, which is now the publisher of her latest book, Her. Animal Husbandry was one of the first of the American successes in the chick-lit genre. Do you feel the competition a lot more fiercely now, five years down the line?
BURT BACHARACH: A SELECTED DISCOGRAPHY. Davide Bonori, October 27, Davide Bonori compiled the following chronological selected discography of Bacharach recordings.
When the movie came out in the theatres, I wanted to see it. The trailer seemed so funny. Unfortunately, either my sense of humor isn’t great which I know it isn’t at times or the movie wasn’t all that!!! It did have some funny parts. Brent and I thought it didn’t have much of a story line though. Cheerleaders happen to see a murder cheerleaders from Texas – I forgot which college, they’re the Longhorns though!
I guessed who did the murder though they didn’t show his face.
Reprints Sunday, September 3, Many years from now, when literary historians are poring over the Chick Lit phenomenon and trying to determine how and where it all began in America, pencils will point to one writer, Laura Zigman, and one book, Animal Husbandry. With it, a new genre was born. I’m 44 years old! As long as the books sell.
Laura Zigman is the author of Animal Husbandry and Dating Big Bird. She spent ten years working in book publishing in New York. Her pieces have appeared in the .
So you can imagine how thrilled I became getting to interview her for my blog and I got to be on Hash Hags, the radio show she does with Ann Leary and Julie Klam! Thank you so, so much for this interview, Laura! First, did you like the Radcliffe Publishing Procedures Course, because I took it and was yelled at when instead of moving to NYC, I ran off and got married and lived in Pittsburgh for a few years–a big mistake if there ever was one.
I had no idea you took the Radcliffe Publishing Procedures Course too and yes, you had to say “Procedures” even though no actual “procedures” were taught except for afternoon sherry-drinking. As you know, it’s no longer at Radcliffe, in Cambridge. It’s now in New York and called something else entirely.
But anyway, after having been rejected from every college I applied to except my safety school and after being wait-listed, but then rejected, by Vassar, in a letter addressed: Like you, I had no intention of ever moving to New York.
Librarians’ Choice 2000 Fiction
I have a mailing list! People often ask authors if the stuff in their novels—the good stuff, the juicy stuff, the stuff most likely to get them into trouble—is true. Another reason they say this is so that they can appear to be fabulously imaginative: I think recalling and dredging up and writing about painful and embarrassing events that have actually happened—bad blind dates, bad relationships, bad break-ups, acting like a completely insane obsessive-compulsive jealous suspicious but almost completely justified boyfriend stalker—and things that have been survived—gigantic narcissists; bad sadistic bosses behaving like complete lunatics—is much harder.
She has a reputation for trouble that started even before she gave away her fifteen-million-dollar inheritance. I was actually very excited to pick up this book the moment I found out that Kevin will be the main star this time. I enjoyed the story but I cannot say I was not disappointed. He is too different that it felt like the author completely forgotten how Kevin was like in the previous book and this is a whole new character.
Where has the cheeky and flirtatious Kevin gone? This Kevin felt too similar to Cal Bonner in the previous book. The deception on the part of Molly in the beginning of the book had me wondering how I was ever going to get past it.
