Format: Paperback
If you were a teen in the late 60's or early 70's this is exactly the kind of book that made you feel sophisticated and adult. Mild sex by today's standards, but pretty wild for then. A sort of carefree/anxious vibe with hints of Rat Pack swagger. Clever word play and banter and a sunshine soaked worldliness that represented the best of California dreaming. Sure, maybe you went for Terry Southern, or you were hip enough for Vonnegut, or Heaven forbid you read Abbie Hoffman, (you commie punk). But this was urbane, urban good times with a side of the Playboy lifestyle. Good stuff.

I bought this years ago because I liked the title so much. Then I lent it to a friend and haven't see it since. This copy is to replace the one I lost.

Axelrod's Underdog Hero 25 Aug. 2010
By ticktock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
George Axelrod's career was full of successes and even bigger successes, but for some reason, the novel he penned in 1970 was never judged to be one of them. This story of a hapless middle-aged writer longing to get out of his marriage and finally meeting his life-long fantasy of a long-legged blonde, resonates with every Playboy-reading guy that ever came home to the same lady every day. Good things happen to Axelrod's "everyman" along the way, and you almost find yourself looking for the words "I never thought these stories were true..."

"Where am I now - When I need me?" is highly recommended, not just for the humor (or the sex, which in 1970, was considered near-porn, while now it's just ho-hum) but for the slice of late 1960s culture, which most of us are too young to remember and the rest of us are sadly forgetting. It's a world of non-PC. Women, cigarettes, racial differences... it almost is like reading Dickens, it is so out-dated!

Get the book, read the book. If you are a fan of Axelrod's masterworks, "The Seven Year Itch" and "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" you are guaranteed a good time.

I love this book 26 Aug. 2011
By Lee B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have a copy of this book in paperback; it is old, yellowed and still one of my favorite novels of all times. I never laughed so hard as my first reading, and still laugh every time I pick it up.

I can't see the word "ointment" in print without thinking of this book!

This is one of the books in my personal collection I would never lend out; I was always concerned I not be able to find a replacement.

A great read, very entertaining. I highly recommend it.
One of the funniest books on earth 20 Nov. 2013
By Laura Roden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One of the funniest books on earth.
I read this when I was 12, feeling sophisticated.
14, when I felt jaded.
17, when I knew it all.
22, when I began to laugh at myself.
30, when I really laughed at myself.
40, when I gave it to my daughter.
And on and on. Read it and love it if you have any kind of sense of humor and irony. And especially if you have lived in Los Angeles.
