From the Inside Flap:

Suzi Sinzinnati is the winner of Pushcart's seventh annual Editors' Book Award for "overlooked manuscripts of enduring literary value." Seldom has an author captured the essence of pre-Kennedy America as Joe David Bellamy does in this delightful and touching love story about a pre-med student and a Cincinnati strip tease dancer "Suzi Sinzinnati."

Bellamy's first novel traces the career of Moke Galenaille, a decent young fellow who, after breaking up with his high school sweetheart, runs into Suzi (and her mother) taking it off at the local strip joint. What follows is a hilarious romp through Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, and Montreal, as Moke pursues his dream girl in a funny, sexy, sweet work of art that captures perfectly the American spirit of a lost and more innocent epoch.

"This is a great, funny, loopy novel--it's like spending the week happily cooped up with two girls named Hazel and Sonia in a perfectly seedy downtown hotel, reading Kinsey and listening to the Shangra-las, the Jaynettes, and the Dixie Cups."
--Frederick Bartheleme

From the Back Cover:

"Wait a minute: we've got a likable hero and a lovable heroine, and they actually get together. And enjoy it. Joe David Bellamy's gentle, nostalgic, and funny love story gives us what so much of today's stingy fiction does not: warmth, redemption, and the very good news that happy endings are indeed one of life's options."
--T. Coraghessan Boyle

"A comic fantasy of romance on the rebound, Joe David Bellamy's novel is also a wonderfully engaging and intelligent look at a certain young age in the life of a country and a man. I read it without stopping."
--Lorrie Moore

"Bellamy has created a heroine of wise innocence and irresistible sexuality. O Suzi! Sweet and dangerous Suzi!"
--Robley Wilson

"This is a wise, funny, and touching novel about American life--a lovely book. Bellamy's Suzi Sinzinnati is the girl of your dreams."
--Frederick Exley
