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.
