Inhaltsangabe: "I've always had this thing for cowboys, maybe because I was born in New Jersey. But a real cowboy is hard to find these days, even in the West," says the narrator in the title story of Pam Houston's critically acclaimed collection. In these strong, shrewd, and very funny stories, we meet smart women who are looking for the love of a good man, and men who are wild and hard to pin down. Our heroines are part daredevil, part philosopher, all acute observers of the nuances of modern romance. They go where their cowboys go, they meet cowboys who don't look the part -- and they have staunch friends who give them advice when the going gets rough. Cowboys Are My Weakness is a refreshing and realistic look at men and women -- together and apart.
Über den Autor: Pam Houston was born in New Jersey and graduated from Denison University in 1983. Her collection of stories, Cowboys Are My Weakness, was the 1993 winner of the Western States Book Award, and now appears in eight languages. "How to Talk to a Hunter" was selected for Best American Short Stories 1990. Houston is the editor of the anthology Women on Hunting and wrote the text for a book of photographs called Men Before Ten A.M. She has been a contributing editor at Elle and Ski, now writes regularly for Condé Nast Sports for Women, and teaches creative writing at workshops across the country. Formerly a hunting guide and river guide, she lives at 9,000 feet near the Continental Divide in southwestern Colorado.
