Tarantula Woman by Donald O'Donovan 1995
Tarantula Woman. O'Donovan, Donald, Centaur Press, Carlsbad, Califorina, 1995.
Adventure Fiction, Autobiographical Novel
Located across the U.S.-Mexican border in Ciudad Juarez, Mariscal Street (otherwise known as the Boulevard of Broken Dreams) harbors Donald O'Donovan's quintessential character, Jerzy Mulvaney, as he unsuccessfully courts the Tarantula Woman a prostitute named Ysela with a tattoo of a tarantula on her left shoulder blade. Rather than a work of fiction, Tarantula Woman is a refreshingly honest document that subtly addresses such essential subjects as life, love, death and the challenge of simply being.
