by Nancy Stabile Philosophical and analytical, Gilda goes through life forlornly at times, wishing for things like a perfect boyfriend and a cushy job. When she gets stuck, she goes to her favorite retreat in the inner recesses of her mind. There she meets a man who sometimes helps her on her quest. Through the ups and downs, twists and turns, every minute detail counts on her journey through life. She always makes the right decisions, but will the world let her carry them out? Will she win in the end, or think her life is a failure? Application for Manhood is a story of the everyday life of a man and a woman, growing up from childhood to adulthood. They go from childhood friends to college, marriage, an affair, divorce, getting back together, grandchildren, and old age. Join them as subtle humor and comical plot twists combine to make this tale anything but mundane. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Nancy Stabile grew up in Warminster, Pennsylvania.
