The landlocked mermaid is a symbol of the contemporary woman, trapped in a paradoxical dilemma of being part worldly and domesticated, part untamable and intuitive. In A Survival Guide for Landlocked Mermaids, artist Margot Datz sees the she-nymph within, struggling to emerge, and in a swirl of whimsical and witty wisdom, lovingly offers tips for today's world of dating, mating, and beyond.
Margot's beautifully painted, contemporary mermaids are caught in the nets of their own comical dilemmas, circling the heart's fishbowl of romantic longings and in the murky depths of deep emotion. Whether it's the value of cultivating an inner water garden or coping with crow's feet and fish tails, Margot offers advice and an enchanting way of hydrating your weary mermaid soul.
Coy, sweetly mischievous, and a pinch sagacious, this is a book that, like a good glass of wine, can be enjoyed multiple times, sipped on, or downed in one reading.
"Margot Datz's "A Survival Guide for Landlocked Mermaids" succeeds beyond my wildest dreams, with a unique blend of whimsical woman-wisdom that is elevating to the spirit and affirming to the soul. It leaves us feeling good about our woman-selves and gives us a roadmap to that place where we can embrace all that we are, unapologetically, with confidence and joy, and, of course, the whimsy we all need--not only to survive but to prosper." -- Charlayne Hunter-Gault, part-time vineyarder, Johannesburg-based journalist, and author of "No News Out of Africa"
