(1 Ratings)
“The Dirt On Jane” is Jane Fishman’s anti-memoir. It’s a tale of aging, a style of gardening, a rage at having to wear two pairs of glasses to read a map in the car.... More > It’s a meditation in maintaining a sense of humor when visiting her mother in the assisted living facility and hearing someone ask, “When did you move in?” It’s a prayer for patience when her mother says, “All I want for Mother’s Day is for you to polish your nails with some Iced Mocha I bought on sale.” It’s a look at a life that is haphazard, loopy, fun and always in need of straightening. As a judge in the Savannah Garden Exposition once said of her ten-foot-by-twelve-foot faux garden entry: “Delightful! Shows one doesn't have to spend a lot of money to enjoy gardening. Lacks cohesiveness.” For twenty years Jane Fishman has written a human interest column for the Savannah Morning News. She is the author of “Everyone’s Gotta Be Somewhere,” a collection of newspaper columns. She lives in Savannah, Georgia. ISBN 978-1-4675-0404-1< Less

Jane Fishman is a storyteller. "Everyone's Gotta Be Somewhere" tells the story of Savannah before gentrification. As a columnist for the Savannah Morning News she writes what she sees,... More > what she hears. Send her out and she'll find a story. It could be a barber with a Perry Como sweater or a locksmith named after Houdini. She writes of a Passover Seder in a Key West kitchen, of deciding to go with the gray hair, of a mother who worries too much. Her garden grows amok and she doesn't care. It's the process that counts. It's soil preparation, not product. She's the author of "The Dirt on Jane" and she lives in Savannah. ISBN 0-9707639-0-5< Less
