Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Los Angeles Times bestseller, now in paperback--tales of the notorious New York dating scene, told from the other side of the bed.

Rick Marin offers himself up for an in-depth look at man's superficial nature. At 28, a brief, doomed first marriage thrusts Marin back into Bachelor Hell. A journalist as eager to make it in Manhattan as with its female population, our emotionally myopic hero can never seem to tell if the woman in front of him is too crazy or too sane, until she gets too close. Falling out of love as often as he falls in, he vows more than once to clean up his act, only to relapse into another bender of beauties, blow-offs, and bad behavior--all in desperate pursuit of the woman who can redeem him.

In this rollicking, frequently insensitive and ultimately poignant memoir, Marin proves a master of the light touch even in his darkest hours. It is one man's story, but many men will read it as their own. And for any woman who has ever wondered, "What was he thinking?" This is what he was thinking.

Synopsis:

A hilarious memorir by journalist Rick Marin, describing his unsentimental education from bitter divorcee, to rake about town, and finally to a more highly evolved man able to commit to a monogamous relationship. Media Connections - Marin is a frequent contributor to the New York Times and is sure to get lots of attention from reviewers. Commercial Topic- Women will have the chance to find out what men really are thinking, and men will be able to relate to Marin's witty depictions of his dating escapades. Valentine's Day Tie-In- This will make a perfect gift for the Valentine's Day holiday.
