From Publishers Weekly

Markin is at the mercy of her contributors, so there is dross mixed in with the gold, but these 101 brief encounters could, collectively, persuade any rational person never to date again. Take, for example, actress Kimberly Russell's dinner with a man who admired the way she smelled (he claimed to have been a dog in a past life). Or lawyer Peter Nichols, who discovered at the end of an excruciating blind date that he spent the evening with the wrong woman altogether. Unfortunately, author James Ellroy did find the right blind date: she wore a giant crucifix and her first words were "I don't usually go out with un-saved guys, but my brother said you were tall!" And Alice Cooper relates his outing with Linda Blair to see The Exorcist: "It was sort of like 'The Addams Family' going to the movies." Occasionally a disastrous date ends happily--Anne Bernays marries Justin Kaplan despite her distaste for his choice of brains for lunch. Markin is an independent filmmaker, writer and artist.

Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on May 30, 1999
Format: Paperback
Some of the stories in the book are entertaining but more often than not, they were simply flat and uninteresting. One story which stood out was Ray Sharkey's account of his bad date. One could tell he was one of the most promiscuous kids on the block and his final line of his account read along the lines of "When I moved to Los Angeles I was a kid in a candy store." One didn't have to be Einstein to know that he meant access to women. I guess I wasn't surprised to subsequently learn that he died of AIDS back in 1993. Too many bad dates.
