THE FORTHCOMING JILT by Terry Scott Boykie

The culture wars collide in The Forthcoming Jilt, the brash, disturbing, satirical, and genuine poetic-prose memoir of Tim Bratkowski, America's oldest and foremost baby boomer. His rise from poverty and loneliness is chronicled from Tim's disconsolate childhood, wayward adolescent, secular demagogue, impassioned spokesperson for godless disciples, and, egregiously, errant seducer of forsaken wives and mothers. At the age 72, this redoubtable anti-hero rails against topics, personal and public, including life versus death, the stench of the political right, the cowardice of the limousine left, and the need that feeds Bratkowski's psyche for, "Hauling spit through paradise seeking other losers' mates." The book's most compelling sections involve TB's clouded view of and actions with women. He claims he is a liberal lion for equality and justice. Yet, at times with women, he is not. Why is that? Profound, honest, biting, and fascinating, The Forthcoming Jilt is a roller-coaster ride to savor and ponder.
