Ginny Good is an okay book. It's easily as good or better than any book published anywhere in the world so far this century, but that's not saying much. The Multimedia Audio Book of GINNY GOOD is among the best works of literary art ever made. That's saying a lot. Naturally, you're going to think I'm some crackpot but I'm not. Don't take my word for it, click a link or two and see for yourself. Here are five short chapters to start with: Chapter 7 (North Beach), New Year's Eve, 1962, Chapter 18 (Ocean Beach), Winter 1965, Chapter 23 (Golden Gate Park), Fall, 1967, Chapter 27 (Sutro Heights), Summer, 1969 and Chapter 35 (I-5), Spring, 2004:

If you're feeling more ambitious, try Chapter 19 (La Honda), May, 1965, aka "the acid chapter" or Chapter 31 (Sacramento), August, 1973, aka "the heroin chapter."

The link includes the index to The Multimedia Audio Book of GINNY GOOD, which is free, too—everything I do is free. Click the "Listen (Multimedia)" links to hear ten more chapters.

Dear Gerard, The quirks, twists and turns of fate are indeed wonderous to experience. In the course of promoting your novel, and your castigation of the entertainment industry in general, you have nevertheless come up with a webpage that is fast becoming a excellent resource to rival even LMP for anyone working in the industry to contact anyone else. What an enormous amount of time you have spent creating this, and the irony of a guide to an industry that you find contemptible, but have helped make run more smoothly with your wonderful effort can not be lost on you, surely? I can only say thank you for the effort, regardless of what may have motivated or driven you to create this in the first place. Regards, Peter Rubie

Oh, I'm pretty aware of all that twisty-turny stuff, yes, and as for my little directory I did it entirely for my own exquisite reasons which are still somewhat enigmatic even to me. It was something I felt like doing, something I felt like saying...so I did it, so I said it. A German guy named Niemoller didn't say what he felt like saying a long, long time ago, then ended up saying:

"When they came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist...etc., etc. When they came for the Jews, I did not speak out; I was not a Jew. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out."

Or maybe I just like getting ganged-up on. Here's a chapter about getting ganged-up on. Thanks. G.

Dear Gerard, I wanted to ask whether you could remove my name from your website or at least not list me under agents, the reason simply being that I am not a literary agent but a literary scout, which means that I work for foreign publishers as sort of an editorial filter. A lot of authors have contacted me and it seems misguiding to be listed as someone who could possibly help them getting published in this country. Many Thanks, Ariane

Hey, Ariane, I'll be happy to include the distinction you've described but I prefer not to remove you altogether. As a scout, an "editorial filter," if you will, you may discover books worth recommending to the foreign publishers you work for, like my book, for example...truly the best book published anywhere in the world so far this century. Read it and see. And I'm sure there are other people with books whose publishers are looking to sell foreign rights, like I'm pretty sure my publisher is. Thanks. G.

Dear Gerard, Please remove the email address loretta@lorettabarrettbooks.com. Loretta uses that for her personal address, not for agency business. Also, please remove mail@lorettabarrettbooks.com, as that is our agency business box and we do not want queries coming in to it. As you'll see from our website, we do not list either of those email addresses. For queries, we have query@lorettabarrettbooks.com, so I would appreciate it if you would list

Hey, Nick, I like to include as many "real" individual people as I can find for my little list...the only criterion I have is that his or her e-mail address "works." It's impossible to know what "method" might get an agent's attention, so I use as many as I can, but I've passed your concerns along. Thanks. G.

Sharon Friedman (@)

Dear Gerard Jones, Your website is extraordinary. Aside from the wealth of information you provide, you demystify the process of publishing and give writers back the dignity which agents and publishers have stripped from them. I was an agent for many years in New York (first at Sanford Greenburger, then at John Hawkins and finally at Ralph Vicinanza). Some of my previous clients included H.H. the Dalai Lama, Joyce Carol Oates, Larry Watson, Henry Mayer, Pat Shipman, Eric Kimmel, Kathe Koja, Gary Amdahl, and Roger Lewin.

Five years ago, I moved to Jerusalem, left publishing and became a boxer, achieving the dubious title of Israeli lightweight champion (like being a big fish in a little toilet). Last year I started up an MA program in Creative Writing in English at Bar-Ilan University and became so excited about some of the students' writing that I decided to come out of retirement. I started my own agency here a few months ago representing books that have some connection to the Middle East. That could mean that the writer lives in this region, or that the subject of the writer's book is in some way connected to the Middle East.

When I first came here, I thought it was crazy to try and agent from outside of the New York publishing "community", but the writers here really needed someone and New York agents, for the most part, do not want to deal with foreign writers. So I hope to be a useful advocate, help get some good books published, and if I can support myself in the process, or at least keep from losing money, I will be happy. Best wishes, Sharon Friedman

Dear Sharon: Thanks! I'd be happy to include your agency in my little directory. I can't make a whole new page for Israel Literary Agents, since you're the only one I know about, but I'll stick you in a prominent place among US Agents. The whole publishing bureaucracy needs not only demystifying but also to be brought kicking and screaming out of the 19th Century and into the 21st. My little directory might play some minor role in the process. Or not. Who knows? Not me. All I know is that all the work I did on the book that's coming out in the spring and the other books I'm still trying to sell was done and is still being done almost exclusively by e-mail. It's opened up a whole brave new two-way street between agents, editors and publishers, and otherwise virtually undiscoverable writers. Thanks again. G.

Dear Gerard, Well, I'd be lying if I said I remembered you (sorry--I remember books but not names!) but I love your subject line and your e-mail is compelling. Send me as much of the novel as you want. And a resume. Will I be reading alone or is the novel out with other agents? Thanks, Jody

Dear Jody: It's been awhile. Four years? I can't keep track. I've attached the first chapter as an .rtf file, if you don't hate it, I'll send you a bunch more in the regular mail tomorrow. You're the only one who's looking at it at this precise moment, yes. Thanks. G.

Dear Gerard, Thanks so much for sending me Ophra Wimsfree & The Maynnaise Man. Your writing is fresh and compelling, and I adore Giselle. But I found myself thrown out of the reading experience by the religious and inspirational messages that crept in and got increasingly heavy-handed, and oddly ignored by Giselle. Sadly, I think I'm not the right agent for the novel. But I wish you all the best of success--unless, that is, the spiritual message is actually a MacGuffin, in which case by all means send me the rest of the book. All best, Jody Rein

Hey, Jody, a MacGuffin and not a MacGuffin, yes. How's that for a MacGuffinesque answer? Here's a synopsis which I may or may not already have sent you. I toned down the "religious" stuff, but didn't eliminate it. I've sent the latest version at their request to a couple way heavy-duty editors. If it's not your cup of tea, that's cool. It's going to be a tough book to sell because of the Oprah factor, but, perhaps also because of the Oprah factor, a million people will want to read it. Let it settle awhile and if you decide you want to see the complete manuscript, I'd be happy to send it to you. Thanks again. G.

Hi Gerard, OK--do send me the rest. I searched for a synopsis after I finished the chunk of ms. you sent me, but found nothing, not even my original request to see the ms, although I do remember a couple of e-mails. Either I got hit on the head myself, or there wasn't much correspondence to be found. Can you also send me your bio and your original pitch letter or anything else I might need to see? You're a fine, fun writer. (I thought Abraham was going to help Giselle see the light of Jesus, go to church and forgive her mom, The End. Obviously not.) Best, Jody

Dear Gerard, Well, now I have read The Mayonnaise Man in its entirety (save those last 50 pages) and certainly it didn't end up being the fundamentalist propaganda I feared! I wish I could say that the reading experience changed my mind utterly, and that now I know I can sell your work to a major house who will lovingly and professionally publish it. Alas, I cannot. I remain firm in my belief that you are a marvelous storyteller. I just wish the story told had continued to captivated my reader's heart, and it didn't. I understand what you're doing, I think, from a literary point of view, but the extended dream tried my patience as a reader. Perhaps you're too good--Giselle is such a wonderful character that losing her to an incongruous and unbelievable dream where she turns so wholly into an ineffectual onlooker is just too frustrating. Maybe, now that I think about it, I don't understand after all, from a literary point of view, what you're doing. I think maybe this book is over my head, that if you are using metaphor and allegory to make points about the world, I'm missing those points. What an original romp, though. I hope you find an agent who understands this book better than I do, and can help you find an enthusiastic publisher. You're a terrific and imaginative writer. Maybe you ought to go straight to Farrar Strauss or Knopf or Susan Kamil at The Dial Press and let the dense agents of more linear and transparent literature be damned. With all good wishes, and many thanks for sharing the Mayo with me, Jody

Hey, Jody, thanks for taking a look. An incongruous and unbelievable dream it is, yes indeedy, as dreams are wont to be, but so were "The Taming of the Shrew" and "Alice in Wonderland," as I recall. You're very likely less dense than most editors. The publishing industry will either be up for an original romp or it will not. The more linear and transparent literature I've heard about being written these days seems way more preposterous than anything in this, but, hey, is there any accounting for taste? Leslie Gelbman & Sally Richardson are reading the sucker all on their own. I'm sure they'll diss it too. Would that I could bring myself to write the sort of thing editors think people want to read. I can't. Oh, well. You're a sweetie pie. Stay away from them forest fires, man. Thanks again. G.

Dear Gerard: I've been visiting, recommending to all my clients, and tracking with admiration and respect your dedicated, passionate, and profoundly committed evolution of EVERYONE WHO'S ANYONE since you published the First Edition. Now that you've achieved the Fourth Edition, I can say with the expert, professional authority that comes from almost 40 years in publishing that the new edition is a monumental work of art, a reference directory for the book publishing and movie industries, that's parallel to the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY. Unique, and at the top, in a class of its own. The service and value that you're providing to everyone, around the world, is noble and phenomenal. On behalf of all of us, thank you! I know that your public-service commitment is for life, that you're already planning and preparing the Fifth Edition, and again, I say, THANK YOU! With respect, appreciation, and all the very best, Paul, Professor Paul D. McCarthy, President and Editor-in-Chief, McCarthy Creative Services

Hey, Paul, I'm widely thought of as a total crank. It's kind of cranky to have no formal ambition, I guess. People don't get it. It's kind of like having no formal education, which I don't have either. Oh, well, those who have ears hear. Thanks. G.
