About the Author

ADAM WASSON is a Scotch-swilling, Marlboro-smoking, relationship-sabotaging MWM. He enjoys walks on the beach, sodomitical literature, and good food. He is looking for: a small but vehement cult following.

JESSICA STAMEN is an SWF with a kind heart, questionable morals, and a history of Oprah-esque weight fluctuation. She is looking for: a man.

I found the book to be an interesting Satire, although, unlike classical satires the authors did not stay "in character" the entire time, and even at one point made a reference to a website of theirs. Overall, it was good, and although there were moments of... bad taste, most of it was an amusing and ironic veiw of America. I appreciated it.
