"rock and roll fairy tales" Picking up a book titled Men Making Music (a collection of stories dealing with various relationships between male musicians and female fans) you could possibly expect to be about to launch into a series of raves about musicians and their bands and their groupies and their drugs. Right? No. In these stories all the band hype takes a back seat, as the focus here is on relationships and the fascinating subject of the attraction between men and women. Both authors write well. There is careful observation and there is direct expression, maybe from experience, in the pursuit of good story telling. I have always believed that women are wired differently to men. Most men do. It’s just that we often forget this fact. There are lots of good stories here each leading to a satisfying conclusion in its own way. In the first story, Janie says she can’t stand the pink shirt Mitch wears so how could she ever like Mitch, but attraction isn’t a choice, is it?... More > Madeliaette Winterbear goes right into what drives men and women, in all these different scenarios where a woman’s mind may be leaning one way, but she will invariably follow her heart. And then there are the men, who must rule the world they live in, or are at least trying to earn that right. Hey, here are some good ol' rock and roll fairy tales. And fairy tales are so engrossing as they reach for deep patterns that we can all recognise. Yes, some rock and roll fairy tales to enrich our experience. On a final note, I personally didn’t like the univers sans serif font the book is printed in, but maybe it lends itself to the settings the authors are trying to create.< Less
