Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595467296, Paperback)

Peter Bauman, a divorced gay painter, plunges into the personals. He first dates a Connecticut physician-a rabid Republican, and then a man who crochets lace toilet roll covers. Another tryst interrupted by his son, Peter is caught naked two-stepping with a tattooed punk. Next, he's snowbound with a geek heavier than advertised, who arrives with a bag of sex toys. Best pal Barry counsels him to look between the eyes before the legs.He takes more seriously a handsome, stern Maine woodsman, then a British aristocrat patron who declines further intimacy because of his AIDS.During a decade of sex and shenanigans, encouraged by his ex-wife, daughter, and son, Peter examines his life painting portraits and discovers his soul-mate at last.Whether you are straight or gay, Richard Alther exposes the hilarity and devastation of starting over romantically in midlife.
