The first word I remember learning as a child was eavesdrop, and I've been drawn to stories ever since. My first novel, MERMAIDS, become a movie with Cher, Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci. I've published three novels and three memoirs, although they come from the same place, a brew of memory and imagination. Dann's work has been translated into French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.
Patty Dann is the author of Mermaids (which was turned into a film starring Cher and Winona Ryder) and The Baby Boat: A Memoir of Adoption. Dann's articles have appeared in More Magazine and the Chicago Tribune. She has served as a judge for the Scholastic Young Writers Awards. She has an MFA in Writing from Columbia University and a BA in Art History from the University of Oregon.
Patricia Dann (born October 30, 1953) is an American novelist and nonfiction writer. A native of New York and the daughter of television executive Michael Dann, she studied at the University of Oregon, and later earned an MFA in writing from Columbia University. While working as a secretary for A&E in 1986, she revised Mermaids, a coming-of-age novel novel she had written as her Master's thesis, which was subsequently published by Ticknor and Fields.
And then there's Charlotte, who in Patty Dann's hands, is transformed into a young woman of infinite whim and variety. Charlotte's main ambition in life is to become a saint, preferably martyred, though she's Jewish. She's smitten with the shy young caretaker at the convent at the top of the hill. Dann has created a young girl who accepts the unkindness of the mad universe in which she's whirling and takes it on with a savage glee. Charlotte Flax is like no one you have ever met-and someone you know very well.

Mermaids is a book by Patty Dann that was later turned into a film starring Cher, Bob Hoskins, and Winona Ryder. Mrs. Flax was happiest when she was leaving a place, but I wanted to stay put long enough to fall down crazy and hear the Word of God. I always called my mother Mrs. Flax. Got the book a day sooner. The book is in condition of pictures shown. Hope to find another book of interest from this seller. Thank you for the prompt shipping and will very much enjoy reading this book of In Cold Blood.
