Book two of Aisle Bound They say you form your first impression of someone
within thirty seconds of meeting them. Or, in Mira Parrish’s case, within thirty minutes
of not meeting them, when said person is supposed to pick you up from the airport and
never shows. This is not a perfect start to her new life. Her friend Ivy is depending on

Mira finds Sam too sweet to resist. (His hot body may be a factor.­) But if there’s going
to be anything permanent between them, they’ll need to let go of their pasts and look to

Part of the Jewish Encounter seriesIn A Fine Romance, David Lehman looks at the formation of the American songbook—the timeless numbers that became jazz standards, iconic love songs, and sound tracks to famous movies—and explores the extraordinary fact that this songbook was written almost exclusively by Jews.­An acclaimed poet, editor, and cultural critic, David Lehman hears America singing—with a Yiddish accent. He guides us through America in the golden age of song, when “Embraceable You,­” “White Christmas,­” “Easter Parade,­” “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,­” “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man,­” “My Romance,­” “Cheek to Cheek,­” “Stormy Weather,­” and countless others became nothing less than the American sound track.

The lively style of this creative book traces how film feminists looked at, and changed, the movies, moving from the film theory of the 1970s, primarily applied to films made by men, into the films by women artists in the late 1990s. Distinguished Professor Emerita, Patricia Mellencamp, writes of hundreds of movies with wit and cleverness. In her hands, feminist film theory is never dull, never formulaic. This well-­known scholar wants to change lives, as she wanted to change film history throughout her 30 year career as a film professor. Note that this online version is a copy of the hard-­cover book, without its photographic illustrations.
