A memoir about growing up as a Jewish honky-tonk lovin' rebel in Waco, Texas, and falling in and out of love several times a week. Lewison was intent on kicking up her heels. Lewison spins tales of whirlwind romances. One was with a veteran of World War II, whom she married after a weeklong romance. The marriage dissolved when he developed a "messianic complex," according to Lewison. There was also a short, torrid romance with a Beat artist. That ended after she met Mel Lewison and married him eleven days later to stay until death did them part.
