A mid-life crisis novel from the author of White City Blue and Rumours of a Hurricane. Daniel Savage is 45, divorced and living in a bedsit. Where did it all go wrong? With women, of course. Plus he has attitude problems of his own to sort out. So he seeks answers in his own romantic history, and conducts comparative research by dating as many women as he can. Lott is good on the mysteries of manhood, and better than many men are on fathoming the far deeper mysteries of the opposite sex. With this his third novel, Lott has clearly hit his stride, deploying his own unique version of the art of the novel to make sense of contemporary life as viewed from the wrong side of the emotional tracks, the male side.
