I have come to regard almost everything that happens in human life as a form of therapy.

So muses Kenny Cantor, always dapper in his seersucker suit from the Brooks Brothers 346 collection. Kenny is a CPA, amateur psychoanalyst, and sex-tourist vacationing in Rio when he gets waylaid at a psychoanalytic conference.

What ensues is a provocative journey that merges sex and psy

Lacanian romp (which he notes in a disclaimer is not really Lacanian - without explaining why he invokes Lacan in the book) - self-indulgent and uninspired - if Henry Miller had no real ideas, but just wanted to write a book, it would read like this

Two Dollar Radio is usually pretty reliable - this book's a time-waster
Jul 27, 2011 Casey rated it really liked it
I so enjoyed this book. It's a kindhearted satire that manages the unlikely feat of combining adventures in Brazilian sex travel with glimpses of modern psychoanalysis. Now where else are you going to find that? A perfect, lively read for the dog days of summer-- or any other season.

Raunchy and audacious, this tale of an arm-chair psychoanalyist/sex tourist is a riot for readers in the mood, and Two Dollar Radio continues to mark out its territory as the boldest and most daring boutique press around.

Hilarious in the beginning, great part about the psychoanalysis hooker, but eventually, the book degenerates into the same joke repeated over and over again.

The sort of book to "just read". Not any sort of completion/ending to the story. Satisfactory.
