But apart from that- The subject was important to Reinhart, but he could not fail in his responsibility to the meal: again he tossed the mushrooms in their lemon-juice bath. In addition, he resumed, I have all my life generally had difficulty in telling one female person anything about another.

Carl Reinhart, fascinated with women ever since having been born to one, finds himself at close quarters and cross purposes with a variety of female persons. Among them his daughter Winona, a dynamic lady executive and her colleague, daughter-in-law Mercer and, wielding blades as sharp as ever, his ex-wife. But Reinhart has a trick or two left in him. What sets him apart is his skill on a court traditionally female-namely, cookery. In fact, he is so good that he attracts a television offer. Funny, joyful, sad-Berger touches all the emotions.

Read "Reinhart's Women A Novel" by Thomas Berger with Rakuten Kobo  . But when he asks a woman over for a homemade lunch, Reinhart’s idyll is shattered. Adventures and misadventures conspire to put his nascent cooking skills to the test-and turn him into a postmodern celebrity. With Reinhart, Berger has created one of the great comic characters of the twentieth century-a man who beautifully represents, and parodies, his moment. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Thomas Berger including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Berger make it looks easy. I don't know how he does it. It is genius. Thomas Berger must feel that his characters are too interesting and entertaining to not return to, and he is right. Splendor Mainwaring's son is here, representing his father who is in cryogenic suspension, we hope. It is my theory that Robert Crews is a sequel to Regiment of Women perhaps the funniest novel ever written, except for Neighbors. In a hundred years, surely it will be seen that Reinhart (not Rabbit) is the essential fictional human of the second half of the 20th Century.

I first read this book when I was in my 30s and fell in love with Thomas Berger's style. What I didn't realize then, but I realize now is how decent and kind the man is, through his writing. That was a strong draw that I wasn't conscious of back in the day. He has an extraordinary grasp of the English language and employs it with great style and flourish. His characters are finely drawn, the plot has a good flow, arc and resolution and he tells the reader his angle on humanity. I don't understand why he is not as highly regarded as say John Updike, Philip Roth, or any of his other illustrious contemporaries, as he is just as sterling a writer. I love the story of Reinhart. There he is, kind of washed up, serving his daughter, and then he gets a break and his life is transformed. I won't be a spoiler, but I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading the literature produced by a top-notch writer with quality in every word. Try it, you'll like it.

Thomas Berger is an extraordinary wordsmith. And Reinhart is a delightful character!
This is my favorite of the Reinhart series. It describes the Reinhart evolved from life's vagaries.

This is, of course, the fourth Reinhart novel. That it is out of print is a travesty, an abomination, a devastating commentary on the sick state of humanity as a whole.
In this novel, Reinhart has become a cook. Writing a novel is like cooking with memes. It is done for much the same reasons; it is very difficult. But Thos. Berger make it looks easy. I don't know how he does it. It is genius.
Thomas Berger must feel that his characters are too interesting and entertaining to not return to, and he is right. Splendor Mainwaring's son is here, representing his father who is in cryogenic suspension, we hope. (It is my theory that *Robert Crews* is a sequel to *Regiment of Women* perhaps the funniest novel ever written, except for *Neighbors*.)
In a hundred years, surely it will be seen that Reinhart (not Rabbit) is the essential fictional human of the second half of the 20th Century.
I first read *Reinhart's Women* when I was about 34. Then I put it away, knowing--every week that passed in my life--that when I was in my early fifties, I would take it out again, and re-read it. It gave me something to look forward to. After waiting all these years, I have not been disappointed. I wish I could get amnesia so that I could read it again tonight.
Wrongly pigeon-holed by some as a "comic" novelist, or even "black humorist", Berger's themes are large, his fiction is true. He writes novels of imagination (*Changing the Past*, *Being Invisible*, *Regiment of Women*, of history (*Arthur Rex*) and of the human condition). That they are excrutiatingly funny does not mean that they are not excrutiatingly true.
I have read a lot of novels over the years. *Reinhart's Women* is my favorite novel. No one knows women better than Berger, except other women. If you want to know about women, read about Reinhart's.
On the chance that Mr. Berger might read these reviews, I would like to say to him:
Hey! How's Reinhart? Was his TV show a success? Did he marry Edie and give Blaine a kid half-brother or -sister? Did he revivify the restaurant? What about Mercer? What happened to her? Did Genevieve fare better in California than she did in Chicago, and did she ever raise her ugly head again in Southern Ohio (presuming that Reinhart remained there)? Or did everyone simply live happily ever after?
You brought back Jack Crabb. I love Reinhart more. I reallize that the out-of--print status of *Reinhart's Women* may not seem to be too encouraging, but how about this: Mr. Berger, if you write a fifth Reinhart, I will personally give you $100. I am not kidding. [email protected]

I've had this book for many years but avoided reading it since it is the fourth of a series of Reinhart novels by Berger, the others being "Crazy in Berlin" , "Reinhart in Love", and "Vital Parts" (Berger's first, second, and fifth novels respectively). While I enjoyed other Berger novels such as "Little Big Man", "Killing Time", "Arthur Rex", and "The Return of Little Big Man" very much, I somehow never managed to order the other Reinhart novels.

Last weekend, however, I wanted something fun to read on a flight from JFK to O'Hare so I finally pulled this off the shelf and read it. I'm very glad I did because it is a delightfully charming story. Reinhart is a gem of a character; he is sweet and charming, very philosophical, and noble, especially in the calm way he handles his ratfink son and in the kindness he doles out to those who deserve it. The book is also full of wonderful descriptions of Reinhart's culinary creations which will make you salivate and maybe even want to cook something yourself. (I actually successfully followed Reinhart's instructions for making poached eggs which I had never had before.)

Fortunately, the novel is entirely self-contained and stands on its own; you don't need to read the other Reinhart books first. If you already have a copy, go ahead and read it. If you don't and enjoy amusing stories with good characters, then put this and the other Reinhart novels on your shopping list. I'll definitely be ordering the other books in the series. While they are no longer all in print, you can find copies on Amazon.
