The One That Got Away is the first novel by this author who describes herself as "A fruit cup in the whole-grain world of literary fiction."

A Juris Doctor (she studied at night school) Carol is kept very busy as the voluntary chair of the Publishing Triangle, which has been promoting LGBT literature since 1988. And that's when she's not at her day job, working for an organization that administers grants for the many colleges of the City University of New York.

Carol has lived in New York City since 1976, and can often be found at the Metropolitan Opera or the Metropolian Museum of Art.

At one point the two of them (B and C) joined a mycological society. One night I was out at dinner with A and some other friends, and the topic of B and C’s mushroom activities came up. A said: “They bring the mushrooms home and cook them and then they watch me eat them.” I felt a kind of electrical charge run up my spine, and I said, “That would make a great story.” The next day I went to the library and checked out a field guide to mushrooms. That was around twenty years ago. Of course, in the novel, there is no resemblance to real people, living or dead. (less)

“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.”
