Description

From the nation that gave us Victorian virtues, here is another irresistible collection of brilliant, bawdy and often absurd personal ads from the world’s funniest—and smartest—lonely-hearts column. These ads prove that even if you’re lonely, you don’t have to be boring, as advertisers in this book demand much more than long walks on the beach from their potential mates. .

Arranged by theme (“The Usual Hyperbole and a Whiff of Playful Narcissism”), and including footnotes to obscure references, Sexually I’m More of a Switzerland promises to be, like its predecessor, “a bracing splash of cold reality in the flushed face of romance” ( Chicago Tribune )..
