4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Comedy ... with a touch of Bukowski, 17 Aug 2005
This review is from: The Losers Club (Paperback)
This is about a down-and-almost-out young writer who can't get published and can't seem to find love. Or has he already found it? He's in love his 'best pal,' a bi girl by the name of Nikki who he met through the downtown personals. When he perceives he's being rejected by her, he plunges agains into that personal ad subculture and into the East Village, with hilarious results. This is a pretty funny book. It's about relationships, about dreams, about failure and trying to live up to expectations in America. It's also in many ways a travelogue of pre-9/11 Downtown Manhattan and a coming-of-age story. I read this book on an airplane trip to Spain and enjoyed the ride.
