The author of As I Lay Frying and Fried & True returns with more wise and witty recollections about contemporary life in general and more specifically life in Rehoboth Beach, a small resort town on the Delaware Coast. A treat for longtime fans and new readers alike For Frying Out Loud is a collection of Fay s latest columns plus some new, never published material. It s provocative, political, occasionally heartwarming and reliably hilarious. Jacobs' witty way of describing universal experiences in her utterly unique voice will keep you laughing, smiling and relating page after page.

  • Fried & True - Tales from Rehoboth Beach (2007)
    Following on the heels of the best-selling and riotous As I Lay Frying, Fay Jacobs gives you the inside story on life in the gay-friendly resort town of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. This collection of her latest columns from the publication Letters from CAMP Rehoboth is sometimes provocative, sometimes political, often heartwarming and reliably hilarious. Her unique voice and willingness to bare it all in print turn readers into an extended family.

    In addition to her Letters commentaries, Fay takes you inside the remarkable lives of two Rehoboth Beach icons who helped her become, in her words, an accidental publisher. She shares her close friendship with author Sarah Aldridge (the pen name of writer/publisher Anyda Marchant who wrote 14 classic novels and founded, with her partner Muriel Crawford, The Naiad Press. Naiad was the first and most successful feminist publishing house in the country in the 1970s and 80s and Fay's friendship with the founders will give readers a extraordinary glimpse of history.

    Jacobs' witty way of describing universal experiences and the travails life delivers will keep you smiling and relating page after page.

  • As I Lay Frying: A Rehoboth Beach Memoir (2004, 2010)
    Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has been called "The Nation's Summer Capital" ever since the families of U.S. Senators and Congressmen discovered its beauty and charm, spending summers in Rehoboth to escape the oppressive heat and humidity of Washington, DC. Later, Rehoboth became another kind of refuge, when the gay and lesbian communities of the Mid-Atlantic found a beach resort to call their own.

    In 1995, writer Fay Jacobs and her partner Bonnie literally cruised into town and discovered the unique charm of this seaside community. Almost immediately, Fay began chronicling her life as a Rehoboth weekender in a column that appeared in the magazine Letters from CAMP Rehoboth. In the years that followed, Fay's Rehoboth fans have followed her smart, witty columns as Fay & Bonnie made the transition from visitors to regulars to locals themselves. Fay's unique voice and her willingness to bare it all in print turned her fans into a sort of extended family.

    Now, for the first time, the collected essays of Fay Jacobs are being published in book form. Together, they tell a story that is sometimes provocative, sometimes political, occasionally heartwarming, and always hilarious.

As Editor
    • The Latecomer (1974, 2009) by Sarah Aldridge with Fay Jacobs, ed.
      This is the 35th Anniversary edition of the first book ever published by Naiad Press. This book was released in 1974 - and was one of, if not the first lesbian novel to have a happy ending and promise of a viable future for the two protagonists. In this edition, there are comments from contemporaries of author Sarah Aldridge (Anyda Marchant) like Katharine Forrest, Holly Near, Ann Bannon, Jinx Beers, Cris Williamson and more, plus later novelists and activists weighing in on the history of lesbian publishing and a glimpse of what these first, hopeful books meant to these readers and writers. They include Radclyffe, Ellen Hart, JM Redmann, KG MacGregor, Kate Clinton and many more. This book also includes photographs of the author from that time period and a call to writers and readers to contribute to the lesbian/feminist publishing legacy.

      The Latecomer tells of Philippa, returning by ship from Europe, who finds her life unexpectedly changed by the woman who shares her cabin -an entertainer whose career contrasts vividly with Philippa's own existence. From Washington DC and its political intrigue to New York City, the women keep encountering one another until they recognize what their love means to them and their future.
