Overview

These are not memoirs of an extraordinary life. They are the texture of a fabric woven of playfulness and of lingering regret.

This is a book about hair style, Vikings and sliced ham. It is about a girl dressed as a clown and it is about the sexuality of board games. These are the memoirs of a man who finally read Moby Dick, who played Little League baseball in New York, learned to tango in Boston, received a doctorate in Michigan, used Ulysses as foreplay in Nashville, and mispronounced a word in Sweden.

This is a life story: of leprosy, rare wines, the Ronettes, a nun - and of hasty retreats - of destiny and go-go dancing, laced corsets and Keats. It is a story of humor and eccentricity and the past. It's about the romantic ideal and passion - and love - and loss - and of great sadness.

And it's about a search.

Ultimately, these memoirs are part of a quest for sensual redemption.
