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)
"[What's Not to Love?] soar[s] with Ames' original wit and generous spirit." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Hilarious....[Jonathan Ames has] an unusual ability to take crack-smoking, balding, and Oedipal fixation and whip them up into an elegant, comic meringue." (The New York Times Book Review)
Interesting to see the world through the eyes of a pervert. He does tell you he is a pervert, and does not lie. If you cannot share his view, I wouldn't recommend the book
