"By feeling insecure about our making love, Nina, you make the inference we are a pair of cheap people involved in some cheap pleasant friction"

Oh my. Did Travis Magee really get girls with lines like that?

The good part of the book is an adventure with LSD in corrupt mental hospital. The rest of it is Magee trying to convince us that he is a sensitive caring guy and not just someone who will hop in bed with any gorgeous young thing who happens by, quite a trick since he actually does hop in bed with almost any gorgeous young thing that happens by. He doesn't really expect to get credit for turning down older women, does he?
