All Men Are Cremated Equal: My 77 Blind Dates Paperback – December 1, 2008
|New from||Used from|
Elizabeth Fournier's 77 stories, at once cautionary and joyous, will serve as a highly entertaining road map for anyone setting out on that potholed highway known as dating. She made me laugh derisevely, made me sigh in empathy, and most of all, made me remember why I stay married. --Michele Gendelman, author of What the Other Mothers Know
If you think that being beautiful and smart is a free pass to love and happiness, Elizabeth Fournier's memoir of a slog through the underbelly of American manhood is what you need. Funny, wistful and sharply observed. A must-read for men who want to do better socially. --Ed Goldberg, author of Dead Air
Fournier's recounting of a true-life spree of blind-dating will attract the young and not-as-young female readers who enjoyed Maria Dahvana Headley's THE YEAR OF YES. This is light-hearted and at times light-headed stuff, a revealing depiction of the mating game as it's played in this new millennium. --Harold C. Morris, author of Offering for an Eclipse

Set off by her broken engagement, Elizabeth enlists everyone in sight to set her up on blind dates in a passionate quest to meet one really great guy. Armed with a 10-point list of dating criteria, skintight jeans, and flash cards on Nascar, football, and micro-breweries-Elizabeth spends one full year doing the blind date meet and greet.
Names are changed to protect the rejected as Elizabeth humorously dishes dot-com hotties, compulsive bloggers, and tattooed graduates of the Gene Simmons School of Dating.
Reviewed by IR Staff
I read it as a newly single woman in my thirties, ok just turned forty, and it was fun to see what someone else went through to find the right man. The variety and comical encounters made me laugh out loud. The spunk, intelligence, and beauty of the author came out readily. That this is a true story, made it all the better.
A very enjoyable, funny, uplifting read.
