Damian blogs his way through today's dating scene and all its hazards-online dating, biological clocks, single mothers and their children, well-meaning friends, ex-girlfriends, and his meddling, matchmaking cousin-to find that the only thing that stands between him and success may actually be himself. Can Damian stop his world from crumbling around him and get it together in time to gain a chance at true happiness and write the "booty novel" everyone's telling him to write?

This is about a writer whose last book, a science fiction novel called Winter Soldiers, was a commercial 'disaster' and whose friends are suggesting a more marketable route for next time. As protagonist Damian Cross puts it, " I knew what to do. I knew the rules I had to follow. Character development.Plot points. Arcs. Happy resolve. Believe it or not, I even know proper sentence structure."

Bill Campbell's previous book, the science fiction novel Sunshine Patriots, did in fact have plot points. But it was Faulkner-level reading difficulty and grim (even Grimm, now that I think of it). Just right for readers who are looking for that- all 500 of them, according to Damian. This new book (see other reviews)is realistically and intelligently funny. It also has a group of likable (and some not so) characters, long-time friends in social work, inner-city schools, music and generally intense professions- a change from the slacker/cubicle/potter people of way too many novels- with maybe uneasy personal lives but who have their mundane downtimes and can gleefully gossip or advise our hero in his current woes (he's also just been dumped by his fiancee).

It's a first person narration, and Damian's own take on beauty, race and- see title- sex is a tad misogynistic at first, but memories and contact with cousin Didi and some old girlfriends- including the demon fiancee- get his soul back.

When I first started reading this book - as a pregnant, married, white, thirty-something - I wondered if there was anything I could relate to in this story. Fortunately, I was intrigued by the title and amused by the cover art, and gave it a chance. Half-way into the book I couldn't put it down. It is a fantastic journey into the head of a misguided male, who is literary, intelligent, music obsessed and enough neurotic that he, well, often sabotages what is best for him. In short, you fall in love with Damian and can't even consider putting the book down until he figures it all out. This book is clever, confessional, list-oriented, heavy on soundtracks, and absolutely ready to be optioned as a movie.

If Nick Hornby was less of a white boy, he would have written this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it and you will too.

The author recently released a new book -- Koontown Killing Kaper -- which is a satire that made me want to re-visit this older book of his. It is indeed still hilarious. The characters in the novel are so well-formed that you really feel like you know this group of friends. This novel is a rare stand-out in the genre of "romantic comedy" or "urban romance" -- or whatever you want to call it -- because it's so real and easy to relate to. I love "meta" works of art, and this journey through the protagonist's efforts to write a "booty novel" that will actually sell, which actually ends up being this heartfelt novel about relationships, is a fun ride.

A witty narrative about [some of] life's anxieties as they are experienced and [very amusingly] chronicled by a smart, thirty-something, struggling writer. The issues in question are genuine; the presentation style clever; and combined they make the whole account rather believable. The author's noticeable sense of humor and what I would call 'the gift of language' allow for quite an entertaining read.

I found this to be a particularly enjoyable book, and would certainly recommend it!
