Description

Sex is casual, but conversation is a serious matter in the outrageous adventures of Olivia, a contemporary cougar. She feasts on young men of all kinds, in a world where sex isn’t dirty but love is coated in grime. In these raucous short stories, she runs the gauntlet of men, including a Harley-riding bikini salesman, a semiotics professor, a foot fetishist, a jaded brand consultant, a homeless man, and a bisexual mime. Written with Myna Wallin’s signature wit, this entertaining account of the dating world is given a postmodern twist.

Editorial Review

“Wallin’s book is exhilarating: a dollop of sugar-coated acid. Its subTitle should be, Love and the Older, Single Woman: The persona has been hurt, has snapped back, but vows her vulnerability . . . The tone? Ms. Sylvia Plath Atwood: Satire and Cynicism for the Discriminating Reader. Wallin’s wit exudes wisdom and wrath. Perfect.”  —George Elliott Clarke, poet and playwright
