In this deftly written collection,Judith Podell’s bluesy stories about life, love and loss would be heartbreaking if they weren't so funny. Whether she’s writing about Greenwich Village or Washington,DC, group therapy, magic brownies or sex in a fallout shelter -- Podell recreates a time when first jobs, like first loves, weren’t how we were going spend the rest of our lives.
