Publisher's Summary

A romance at the surface, but look closer, and you'll see this hybrid love story also addresses the fate of the planet. 

Julian, a workaholic-romantic, returns to school and falls head-over-heels for Allison, a lithe and lovely twenty-year-old college student while taking a course that examines the nuances of global warming. 

In class, they pass notes, flirt, and slowly a relationship evolves. When Julian discovers that Allison is due to marry her high school sweetheart, he risks all-including his job-to impress her, seduce her and steal her away.

During a final exam, dressed as a dictator, he reads a treaty on the social economics of climate change, threaded with stanzas from a divine poem written centuries ago by Sappho. Allison is moved by his courtship.

Includes bikers, twisted fairytales, whiskey-drinking poets and a cynical, Kerouac-loving friend who can cite passages with a cigarette hanging from his mouth and a beer in hand. It has foreplay, after-play, rejection, respite, acceptance, and rejection again. A fast-paced, witty and smart read that gives a gritty, behind the scenes look at seduction.
