really liked it

Quick read... kind of romantic fluff... but still well worth reading.

From the Back Cover

In the game of love, there are winners and losers. In The Losers’ Club, Richard Perez tries to answer the eternal question. Set in downtown New York City, The Losers’ Club tells the story of Martin Sierra, an unlucky writer addicted to the personals. His journey brings us into the East Village, pre-9/11—and in contact with Nikki, his dream woman, who remains unattainable romantically yet becomes his friend and confidant during his illuminating misadventures. Populated with characters and surprises few will ever forget, this energetic, comic novel is as much about a generation (we won't say "X") as it is about a specific time and place. "It is a book to be savored." —Tim Sandlin, Sorrow Floats, Social Blunders

"A story of youth, very well told, and it dwells in the mind long after a reader finishes it." —Joanne Greenberg, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

"A very beautiful valentine to a time and place almost faded from existence." —Mary Gaitskill, Bad Behavior, Because They Wanted To

"Funny and endearing—and wisely not so hip as to avoid a good grab for your heart." —Marcie Hershman, Safe in America, Tales of the Master Race

"The Loser's Club is a vibrant and hopeful anthem for all of us 'losers' who choose not to wallow (for too long!) in our despair and who find the will to keep searching."—Heather Lowcock, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Lexington KY
