Fifty year old Frank isn't doing so hot. Jacobson's novel is more mid-life meltdown than crisis. Having been made stupid by sex for his younger years, Frank, even with his ebbing libido, seems most comfortable being ridiculous in the sexual realm. As with all Jacobson's novels, the ridiculous and comic merge with the sublime to explore loss in all its facets.
