This book is not for the faint of heart or the easily offended In fact, the title would benefit from swapping out the word mildly with the word extremely Ames self professed perversions include lusting after under age girls the fact that he never acts on any of these fantasies just about prevents him from coming across as a paedophile , obsession with sexual organs and sexual performance desire for just about any sexual act with any sexual partner, to be honest he even has an encounter on a train that he describes as making love to a dog which ends with both him and the dog having erectio Perhaps All Of Jonathan Ames Problems And The Genesis Of This Hilarious Book Can Be Traced Back To The Late Onset Of His Puberty After All It Can T Be Easy To Be Sixteen With A Hairless Undistinguishable From That Of A Five Year Old S This Wonderfully Entertaining Memoir Is A Touching And Humorous Look At Life In New York City But This Is Life For An Author Who Can Proclaim My First Sexual Experience Was Rather Old Fashioned It Was With A Prostitute An Author Who Can Talk About His Desire To Be A Model For The Hair Club For Men And About Meeting His Son For The First Time Often Insightful, Sometimes Tender, Always Witty And Self Deprecating, What S Not To Love Is An Engaging Memoir From One Of Our Most Funny, Most Daring Writers
