Inhaltsangabe: How does a classy, middle-aged New York City therapist — with a history as grim as any of her clients — jump into the fires of her soul? She can’t. Not alone anyway. Meet Billie Bartholomew, the self-declared “Queen of Kissers” who has spent 50 years looking for love in all the wrong places. It isn’t until a patient introduces her to Quan Yin, the ancient goddess of compassion, that Billie begins to look within herself for answers. The Goddess of 5th Avenue is at once witty and heartbreaking, entertaining and inspirational, as it celebrates life’s beauty — music, poetry, the divine — and explores its darkness — sexual abuse, betrayal, and the grittiness of New York street life. Author Carol Simone uses her remarkable gifts to temper this story of childhood trauma with a heavy dose of ironic humor, and shows that magic and mysticism lie just beyond the veil of everyday life.
Über den Autor: CAROL SIMONE (known as Simone) has published two books of poetry, Why Women Wear Hats and Networks: An Anthology of San Francisco Bay Area Women Poets, and the novel The Kiss of the Shaman. As host of Inside the Healing Circle and San Francisco Nights, both aired in northern California, she is recognized as a radio personality dedicated to exploring a diverse spectrum of topics ranging from jazz and politics to spirituality, health, and literature. Simone lives in northern California.
