A collection of short stories about smart, heroic, philosophical women in search of a few good men features a tale of a Jersey girl looking out for a cowboy.

Simon and Schuster
"I've always had this thing for cowboys, maybe because I was born in New Jersey. But a real cowboy is hard to find these days, even in the West," says the narrator in the title story of Pam Houston's critically acclaimed collection. In these strong, shrewd, and very funny stories, we meet smart women who are looking for the love of a good man, and men who are wild and hard to pin down. Our heroines are part daredevil, part philosopher, all acute observers of the nuances of modern romance. They go where their cowboys go, they meet cowboys who don't look the part -- and they have staunch friends who give them advice when the going gets rough. Cowboys Are My Weakness is a refreshing and realistic look at men and women -- together and apart.

Striking, visual and dare I say poetic short stories about loving all things untamed, including your own heart.

*Note, this edition's cover design (i.e., cowgirl legs with strange cowboy figurine standing in-between them) is laughable and just plain awful - do not judge this book by that particular cover*

Short stories that tackle love, sex and romance with frightening honesty and extraordinary good humour. Shrewd sassy, tough writing for the 90's.
