Overview

New York City, May 2000. The Internet bubble has burst, and Evan's boss fires him with an email. The next day, his girlfriend dumps him, also via email. Afraid to check any more emails, Evan desperately seeks a rebound romance but the catastrophes that ensue go from bad to hilariously worse. Fortunately, Evan meets Sammy -- someone whose legendary disasters with females eclipse even his own.

To reverse their fortunes, they recruit their friends into a group of five guys who take on Manhattan in pursuit of dates, sex, and adventure.

Sammy is the shortest, chubbiest, and baldest of the group. But the quirky math geek, who works as an actuary, is also the funniest and smartest of the gang.

Sammy's college roommate, Carlos, has the Latin look of a telenovela star and easily charms with his silver tongue.

Yi Wang, Evan's college roommate, is a good-looking, Chinese-American, who is fluent in Cantonese and ghetto talk, and talented at basketball but reluctantly on a corporate law path for his parents.

Trevor is a debonair, Afro-British man who became Narc's best friend and basketball partner in law School. Originally from Ghana but educated at Oxford, Trevor charms anyone who hears him talk -- if they can turn their attention away from his six-foot-seven height.

When Evan, a computer programmer and closet writer, falls desperately in love with a Hollywood starlet, he schemes to meet her by writing a novel that will sweep her off her feet. Sammy knows nothing about publishing but is confident of one thing: Evan's book should have the word "sex" in the title.

With musings about life, relationships, and human psychology, this quintessential New York story about the search for happiness follows five men on their comical paths to trouble, self-discovery, and love.

About the Author

Zack Love graduated from Harvard College, where he tried to create a bachelor's degree in Women. With the bachelor portion of that degree in hand, he settled in New York City but - to afford renting his bed-sized studio - found himself flirting mostly with a computer screen and stacks of documents. Determined not to die a corporate drone, Zack decided to sacrifice sleep for screenwriting, an active social life, and Internet startups offering temporary billion-dollar fantasies.

To feed his steady diet of NYC nightlife, he regularly crashed VIP parties in the early 2000s and twice bumped into his burgeoning crush, a Hollywood starlet. But - much to Zack's surprise - neither of those awkward conversations led to marriage with the A-list actress. Zack eventually consoled himself by imagining fiascoes far worse than those involving his celebrity crush. In the process, he dreamed up a motley gang of five men inspired by some of his college friends and quirky work colleagues. And thus was born "Sex in the Title." But the novel is not autobiographical: Zack never had his third leg attacked by any mammal (nor by any plant, for that matter). In fact, keeping his member safe has been one of Zack's lifelong goals - and one of the few that he's managed to accomplish.
