Ralph Cissne discusses and signs Prudence in Hollywood: And Other Stories
"I went to the gynecologist last week, which isn't all that unusual except I'm a man. Prudence insisted I go." So begins the title story of this collection exploring the matrix of modern American relationships.
From Farewell True Love to Prudence in Hollywood, Lover Boy to Laughing Stock, Claim to Fame to Alpha Girl, we follow a quirky cast of unconventional characters pursuing love with surprising and often humorous consequences: a long-term romance ends; the love junkie meets his match; an Elvis impersonator crashes his class reunion; a stand-up comedian faces her fears; Hollywood personal training clients realize their dreams; a blended family heals emotional wounds.
