Straightforward, chronological memoir of Stoddard's arrival as a sex writer with Interesting for me as he is a Brit who always felt more affinity for the US than his home country. I can completely relate to his attitude to the UK and how he is treated by fellow Brits he meets here.

The prose is matter of fact and self-depricating and in places, very funny. Can't help feeling that the sort of things he gets up to ultimately leave him unsatisfied, lonely and sad. This is probably what he is going for and if so, succeeds very well. It doesn't sound like a lifestyle to aspire to frankly!
