"Ladies Who Lunch" - eBook, for Kindle
Ladies Who Lunch is a satirical romance novel with specific time-place contexts: Los Angeles (a recurring “character” in the novel”) and the landscape of the mid-1990s. Our heroine, Daniel Wiffard, is freshly divorced and making her way through the maze of challenges, an expansive cast of lunching friends (“ladies who lunch”), show biz folk, and assorted romantic liaisons. Her path to self-discovery also involves weathering calamities--of the interpersonal and natural disaster sort. It’s all in good--and sometimes nasty--fun, with serious commentary in the margins.
Author Josef Woodard is a veteran cultural critic, who wrote for the Los Angeles Times for 25 years, has contributed to Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, DownBeat and many music magazines and has so far published two books, on jazz legends Charles Lloyd and Charlie Haden, respectively. He is also a musician, a guitarist, songwriter, and head of the Household Ink Records label. This is his first novel.
