…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.
