@Download Epub õ What's Not to Love?: The Adventures of a Mildly Perverted Young Writer õ 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 DNF Stopped reading halfway through Not that funny and not particularly interesting Like a poor man s Sedaris Blah. What, indeed I suppose i ll never know what I would ve thought of Jonathan Ames writing without first seeing his fiction and fictional self in TV s Bored to Death This book is madcap, graphic, onanistic in a variety of ways Luckily, through the glare of all that and the lens of knowing that however down dirty his life was, he almost certainly is worrying less now about moving back in with his parents with three seasons of a hit show under his belt , it s his writing that wins out Deliber What, indeed I suppose i ll never know what I would ve thought of Jonathan Ames writing without first seeing his fiction and fictional self in TV s Bored to Death This book is madcap, graphic, onanistic in a variety of ways Luckily, through the glare of all that and the lens of knowing that however down dirty his life was, he almost certainly is worrying less now about moving back in with his parents with three seasons of a hit show under his belt , it s his writing that wins out Deliberate, sure, almost classical, his style and form are the perfect polite perpective from where to view his debauched subject matter Also, hilarious and touching More than once I had fits of laughter,than once I was moved to the point of tears This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This book is comprised of a collection of articles the author wrote for a newspaper the name of which escapes me Strung together in book format like this, it resembles an autobiography but every now and then he ll write something that reminds you that wasn t the original intention.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 This book is comprised of a collection of articles the author wrote for a newspaper the name of which escapes me Strung together in book format like this, it resembles an autobiography but every now and then he ll write something that reminds you that wasn t the original intention.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 erections.I m hoping you re getting an idea of the level of perversion we re talking about here.Ames, however, is neurotic enough and self aware enough to not completely lose the reader s sympathy He talks with painful honesty about almost any subject, from the depths of his bowel movements right up to his unflagging love of his friends and family He describes his relationship with his parents as Oedipal not entirely inaccurately but the purer love he has for his great aunt and young son is genuinely touching.Largely due to the subject matter he chooses to write about, this book is often very funny I laughed out loud a number of times In fact, I d probably have given this book five stars if I hadn t already read his I now realise largely autobiographical novel The Extra Man , which covers a lot of the same ground, albeit fictionalised to varying degrees.Anyway, I think I d better read something slightly less perverted next Does anybody have a copy of anything written by the Marquis de Sade I could borrow Funny, clever and often scatological The perfect read for a Jewish male which I m not.
