Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of What's a Girl Gotta Do? comes the hilarious new adventure of Robin Hudson.

On paper at least, things couldn't be better for Robin Hudson, the sassy, young Rita Hayworth-looking, sexy; and opinionated tabloid TV reporter for All News Network. Suddenly successful, she gets to boss other people around in her job, and she has more men than she knows what to do with. Then a series of seemingly random encounters, and one strange dead guy, lead Robin into the secret world of men and onto the trail of a mysterious chemical known as Adam One. Before it's over, she'll have to brave a macho hunting expedition, fistlighting thugs, and a convention of drugged feminists. Meanwhile, men's social conditioning and women's own sexism don't escape Robin's sharp eye. The Last Manly Man is a comedy, a mystery; an unorthodox love letter to men, and as a bonus, offers some practical how-to advice on finding and han-dling success in a "man's world."
