• Bridge Ladies

    Bridge Ladies Sometimes I think a meteor could strike the earth and wipe out mankind with the exception of my mother’s Bridge club — Roz, Bea, Bette, Rhoda, and Jackie — five Jewish octogenarians who continue to gather for lunch and Bridge on Mondays as they have for over fifty years. When I set out to learn about the women behind the matching outfits and accessories, I never expected to fall in love with them. This is the story of the ladies, their game, and most of all the ragged path that led me back to my mother.

Did She Ask You Twice?

TONIGHT at BARNES & NOBLE at UNION SQUARE at 7pm:

Eric Erlandson (born January 9, 1963, in Los Angeles, California, United States) is a musician best known as the co-founder (with Courtney Love), songwriter and lead guitarist of alternative rock band Hole. In 1989, Erlandson began working at Capitol Records as a royalty accountant, and auditioning for bands in the Hollywood area. He responded to an advertisement placed by Courtney Love in the Recycler, a local classified ad paper.

  1. Never got into Hole. Nirvana–that was something else. I miss Kurt. I have drugs. I could buy this book if it is honestly written. So many glaze over. The title alone interest me.

  2. If I had caught wind of this a little earlier, I might’ve gone. More to hear Melissa Auf der Maur, I admit, but I would still have gotten a taste of the book that way.

    If it’s your book, Betsy, congratulation!

  3. There has been some very fine poetry written and mixed with music. And some wild stuff, too. Hole was a band that had something to say. An evening with Eric Erlandson and Melissa Auf der Maur should be very interesting and the Union Square setting sounds ideal.

  4. she didn’t even ask me once

  5. she just stood on tip-toes and kissed me

  6. How about that? Earlier today, I was telling my girl about when Hole played in Pittsburgh, PA and someone told me about it very, very last minute and I ran up to my dorm, which was on the highest hill on campus. I had just eaten awful college food and when I came back down, not only had my ride for/to the show left, but I was paralyzed with cramps. I don’t blame Courtney…or Eric.

    Hey, I wrote a book. If you would like, help me get it published.

    Thanks.
