Ginny Good is an okay book. It's easily as good or better than any narrative nonfiction book published anywhere in the world so far this century, but that's not saying much. The Multimedia Audio Book of GINNY GOOD is the most beautiful work of literary art ever made. That's saying a lot. Click a link or two and see for yourself. Here are five short chapters, pick one and listen to it.

Chapter 7 (North Beach), New Year's Eve, 1962:

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/audio/GGch07m.mp3

Chapter 18 (Ocean Beach), Winter 1965:

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/audio/GGch18m.mp3

Chapter 23 (Golden Gate Park), Fall, 1967:

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/audio/GGch23m.mp3

Chapter 27 (Sutro Heights), Summer, 1969:

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/audio/GGch27m.mp3

Chapter 35 (I-5), Spring, 2004:

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/audio/GGch35m.mp3

If you're up to spending forty-five minutes to have the doors of your perception opened a crack, try Chapter 19 (La Honda), May, 1965, aka "the acid chapter:"

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/audio/GGch19m.mp3

If you have another half an hour, listen to Chapter 31 (Sacramento), August, 1973, aka "the heroin chapter:"

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/audio/GGch31m.mp3

Nobody's ever done anything like either one of them and there are plenty more chapters where they came from. You can read and/or listen to Ginny Good (ISBN: 0972635750) in its entirety on any device for free:

http://everyonewhosanyone.com/ggcha.html

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 more chapters. If you want the whole fifteen-hour extravaganza on .mp3 CDs, give me a mailing address and I'll send you a copy. Thanks. G.

When I first made up this little list of Book Awards back in 2003, some guy told me:

"My own feeling about the whole commercial writing scene such as it is now is that though it was ails tough to impossible for writers it's now just mostly insulting. Awards and prizes are just a shameless way of publicizing books. You don't smell like money to a money shark; you don't get a prize."

My stuff's all free so there won't be no insulting awards for me, yippee! Making "
the most beautiful work of literary art ever made" has gotta be better than getting some silly statue.

Ginny Good won itself one of these IPPY things for Best Aurobiography/Memoir of 2004. It would've won best everything from everywhere else if anyone with any brains had read it...but, alas, people only read the money-grubbing twaddle publicists tell The New York Times to tell 'em to read. Oh, well. If you think I'm lying, I'm not. Check out this review: Gerard Jones: Ginny Good. When The New York Times reviews a better book than Ginny Good, I'll eat The New York Times. G.



Literary Boys and Girls



Sure, I was a little wrapped up in myself. I've always been a little wrapped up in myself. Who isn't a little wrapped up in himself or herself? We're all a bunch of fucking water spiders, skimming over the surface of everything, face to face with nothing but our own stupid reflections. All I had to do was look. All I had to do was listen. But I didn't. I had this appointment, see.

Ginny Good, Chapter Thirty-Two (Hillsborough)

Stanford



The guys she was used to going out with were "men" from Harvard and Yale and Stanford—guys who could afford to gamble the price of dinner at a fancy restaurant on the off chance it might get them into her good graces. She'd been a debutante. Her father grew up on an estate in Westchester County. They had a summer cottage in Newport. Her grandmother dolled out toilet paper from a locked cupboard, one square at a time. There was Frick money in the mix.

Princeton



He smiled. He thought I was amusing. I was. He thought I seemed to like his daughter pretty well, too. I did. On a shelf above his desk, there was a picture of him taken when he was around twenty-two—the same age I was then. He was in his last year at Princeton, reading a newspaper that had a picture of Charles Lindbergh landing in Paris on the front page. A few years after our conversation, George F. Good got overwhelmed with grief and fearful for his safety when he heard that Sandy had been living with the so-called Manson Family and not long after that, he died.

University of Michigan



I grew up in Michigan, Royal Oak, Michigan, ten miles north of Detroit. That was how the main roads got their names—by how far north of Detroit they were: Ten Mile Road. Eleven Mile. Twelve Mile. Like that. Starting down by the Detroit River, Woodward Avenue cut across each of the Mile Roads clear out to the lakes we went to in the summer; Orchard Lake, Cass Lake, Walled Lake. That was what you did in Michigan. You swam in lakes in the summer and ice-skated on lakes in the winter. The farther away from Detroit you got, the better the neighborhoods became. I lived a block from Ten Mile myself, not far from the Detroit Zoo.

A guy named Bud showed up. He was from Madison, Wisconsin and had a spindly goatee. Lots of people lived there. Ginny had found the place in an ad on a bulletin board at San Francisco State. The people who lived there were communists. It was a co-op. None of the cups or saucers or plates or knives or spoons matched any of the other cups or saucers or plates or knives or spoons. Nobody seemed to know who, if anyone, had actually rented the place.

Ginny Good, Chapter Twelve (Clayton Street)
