Staking out the terrain between Sex and the City and Eat, Pray, Love, this contagious narrative follows the author's grand experiment to carve out a model of respectable bachelorhood for women. Crafted as part middle-age memoir, part thinking woman's romance, the story highlights Vicki Marie's sexy, comical, and controversial attempts to reinvent romantic relationships after twenty years of monogamy. More than just one woman's story, the book explores fresh and frank ideas about sex, love, adultery, men, women, race, gay identity, body image, and aging. Women of all ages will respond to the dilemma that is central to the real-life protagonist: How does one manage the rise and fall of love? How does one reconcile mythology with real life? How does one get laid and not get screwed?
