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.

See You at the WEHO Book Fair
This Sunday (Sept. 28) I'll be in IWOSC Booth F9 (see map) at the7th Annual West Hollywood Book Fair from Noon to 2 p.m., then reading from Rubber Babes on the Robertson Coffeehouse Stage around 3. Drop by the booth and let's talk about boychik lit and the future of subprime lending.
[Click the map for a better view. Turn right at the main entrance and the IWOSC booth will be just past the Writers Pavilion.]
