boy-chik Yiddish word for a young man with more chutzpah than brains. It's all about male-centered comic fiction, in the manner of P.G. Wodehouse, Peter De Vries (godfather of boychik) and more recent masters of the genre, Erik Tarloff (The Man Who Wrote the Book) and Peter Lefcourt (The Woody). Here's a place for commentary on this evolving form. You can buy Gerald's books from Amazon.com, bn.com, or your favorite bookseller in paper or ebook.

That office romance
By Jillian Lucas for HowAboutWe
It's incredible and bewildering that now there are so many rules. I recently attended an all-day course given by the company attorney on sexual harassment. You can't say she has nice hair or she smells good. Go straight to jail! Here are some rules, and I didn't dream them up. It's the kind of thing the mass-media blogs do between hard-news stories. Make up rules. Rollo never thought of this when he said yes to Vivi when she so generously gave him an opening. http://shine.yahoo.com/love-sex/9-signs-handle-office-romance-182800693.html
