A ticket to the circus by Norris Mailer

I am reading this book A ticket to the circus by Norris Mailer,an Arkansas girl
who was a school teacher once at the same school where my sister teaches.
This is a good book and I would recomend it to you,
This lady among other things says that she has slept with Bill Clinton. she spins a good tale.
try it you will like it.
The woman raised as Barbara Jean Davis in Russellville, Arkansas, was blessed with a russet beauty. Crowned Little Miss Little Rock at the age of 3, she later caught the eye of an up-and-coming Arkansas politician whom she saw throughout 1974. "Dating" doesn't exactly describe Norris's time with Bill Clinton, but the term booty call had not yet been invented. "He would drop by my house at 2 a.m.," she says. "We weren't really talking about public policy."In 1975 Barbara Jean met Mailer when he was speaking at a local college. He was still married to one wife and living with someone else, but these entanglements did not impede the epic affair that followed. "We bounce into each other like sunlight," he wrote to her after their first night together. "The time in Little Rock keeps reflecting back into the room for me so that no matter the hour or the place there we are swimming in that red gold light and there you are smelling like cinnamon. God, you're attractive/

Patsy, I knew this woman. I liked the book too. Her life was nothing like mine. I would remember thinking she was a hippy.
