". . . captures the spirit of the San Francisco Bay area in the 1960's and 1970's and tells the story of Jones' life as Ginny ("the first hippie") drifts into and out of it."-Publishers Marketplace in their "Deal of the Day" column.
"A soothingly disturbing bittersweet elixir. By turns deliciously funny and poignantly painful, it wanders and rambles in and out of the messiness of life. It's real. It's human. You will be different for having immersed yourself in it. Ginny Good has the soul and guts and truth of a classic of American Literature."-Donna McDougle, author and book reviewer

A Biography of Sorts I've been writing stuff on and off all my adult life. Forty years. I've worked at it, sweated over it, worried about rhythm and cadence and the efficacy of individual words in individual sentences. I've come up with a voice that feels reasonably casual and credible enough to say true stuff, but still leaves room to throw in a little lyrical language when it's justified. I've always been pretty selective. Whatever I've written usually zips right along. What I've had to say has been somewhat germane to the affairs of human existence. Some of the stuff was probably even a little illuminating-like the stuff about Ginny Good in the early sixties, for example.
