Daring to Date Again
WINNER OF IPPY AWARD, NEXTGENERATION AWARD and INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARD 2016
…funny and introspective, filled with compassion and written without an ounce of affectation or disingenuousness.… Her explorations are illuminating. They’re also a kick, with a surprisingly uplifting effect.
A candid, breezy memoir that may inspire even the most dating-averse.
Ann is sixty and suffering from celibacy. Going through two divorces has made her skittish; having two children has made her cautious. But finally her longing for sex and romance sends her hurtling out of her comfort zone. Her adventure begins with a very nice transvestite—and gets more interesting from there. Put a divorcee raised in the 1950s into the Internet world, and this is what you get: a comic romp that evolves into a profound and touching experience, complete with some meaty moral questions—and answers. Ranging from Montclair, New Jersey to Harare, Zimbabwe, Daring to Date Again is a compelling, often racy memoir of one woman’s late-life adventures with sex and dating in the modern world.
