How To Become A Virgin
How does a woman (or anyone for that matter) start to play golf? Is it expensive? Where do you learn? Who can teach you? What equipment is really needed? VIRGIN GOLFERS answers all of these questions as it follows the progress of a group of ladies new to the game, relates their trials and triumphs, frustration and elation, and the friendships that emerge through the shared experience of trying to persuade that little white ball to go where you want it to go.
In her startlingly sensual story Rules for Virgins, beloved best-selling author Amy Tan (The Joy Luck Club, The Bonesetter's Daughter) takes us deep into the illicit world of 1912 Shanghai, where beautiful courtesans mercilessly compete for the patronage of wealthy gentlemen. For the women, the contest is deadly serious, a perilous game of economic survival that, if played well, can set them up for life as mistresses of the rich and prominent.
