The Adventures of a Mildly Perverted Young Writer
Vintage, 9780375726491, 288pp.
Publication Date: August 7, 2001
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.

“Ludicrously funny… disconcerting and refreshingly frank.”–The Denver Post
“A mixture of unbridled libido and hopeless romanticism…. [It] soar[s] with Ames’ original wit and generous spirit.”–Entertainment Weekly
