Fay Jacobs is back . . . again!
As the author of four humorous memoirs, activist and comedian Fay Jacobs returns with her newest tall tales, Fried & Convicted, Rehoboth Beach Uncorked. And, as you’d expect, It’s chock-full of Fay’s signature witty, wise, and often laugh-out-loud commentary about the craziness of contemporary life in the diverse and welcoming resort town of Rehoboth Beach on the Delaware Coast.
This time, though, everyone’s favorite “Sit-Down Comic” grapples with the insanity of a high-tech bra, cartoon bladders in prescription advertising, and refusing to act her age . . .
Fried & Convicted was written over the last few years and culminates with Election Day, 2016. It chronicles the joy of gaining equal marriage rights for same-sex couples, tales of Icelandic lagoons, Provincetown adventures, and much ado about lesbians of a certain age. It tells a few harrowing personal stories, such as Bonnie’s unnerving medical diagnosis, the time Fay went kayaking with alligators, and how she came up with a public relations scheme to rescue her pal’s purloined pooch. And through it all, she finds a way to make it provocative, political, occasionally heartwarming, and reliably hilarious.
Featuring Fay’s latest magazine columns plus new, never before published material, Fried & Convicted is a pleasure for longtime fans and new readers alike.
Come along for the ride—you’ll be happy you did!
“Delaware author Fay Jacobs easily aligns with those humorists current and past who are astute observers of the human condition in general, unafraid to discuss aging in a humorous manner, tell whopper tales that are in truth actual observations, and at the same time insert enough compassion that she deserves a big hug. She is a champion for the LGBT community, especially the microcosm that inhabits Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, but she doesn’t limit her keen insight to her own special collective society: this is a book of her journalistic tirades and exposés and commentary on everyday life that comes from her years as an astute journalist.”—Grady Harp, Amazon.com Hall of Fame, Top 100 Reviewer, Vine Voice
