The men are again from West Hollywood, Manhattan, Massachusetts, and Michigan; the women are from Newport, Rhode Island. Against the same backdrop of a fabled New England family in decline and fall, Jan Austen deals with all the arts used by both sexes to captivate one another. From the Art of Picking Up to the Art of Kissing Off.
Following Book One, "A Single Man, Good Fortune (Must Want Wife)," Book Two in this quartet, "The Arts for Captivation," is the story of John Bing and Mary Jane Bennet-Towne-the beau and the beautiful.
One of Austen's novels-written under a different pseudonym-became a major Hollywood movie. Others have been translated into German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish and Swedish.
'There is a power-a raw strength-in (Austen's) writing that is unquestionably original.'
-"Daily Telegraph," London.
'Better than 1,000 "Cosmos" and "Playboy Advisors."'
