“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
