About meTorcivia is a divorced man who transplanted himself from Pennsylvania into the treacherous dating pool in Southern California. His feline companions, Syd and Symon, share his home in San Diego and an occasional dish of leftover tuna. Torcivia loves nothing better than bellying up to the bar with his favorite social lubrication (wine) and watching the bizarre mating rituals of the locals, which he translates into humorous essays. He has been single long enough to be involved in a few train wrecks of his own, admitting that he's "one relationship disaster away from a third cat."

About my libraryI enjoy reading books about love, sex, relationships, health, and religion.


Favorite authorsCharles Bukowski, Chelsea Handler, Christopher Moore, Amy Sedaris, David Sedaris (Shared favorites)
