Lance is a fearless writer who is not afraid to reveal himself "warts and all," so much so that one hopes his parents are no longer living. His tales of dates from hell are the kind of thing that no parent would want to read, but that every parent (or at least, every father) will recognize from his own past.
Nice to know that for all the much-vaunted changes wrought by that long-ago "sexual revolution" the mating game is still as painful and hilarious as I remember it.
Here's how he fawns about Jen, the girl he finally meets after encounters with Ingrid, Devin, Nina, Lauren and Tracy: "All I know is that after a slew of terrible nights of dating in New York City, I met a great girl and I don't want to screw it up." Jen, he says, "loves me more than I could ever hope for." That's Lance, the former horndog speaking. And, like Alex in "A Clockwork Orange," Lance was a lot more alive and engaging while living the wild life.
"Crazy Girls" would be a big pile of sweet mush if it were just about Jen. The point of this Kindle Short, fortunately, is to recount the stories of his really bad first dates, those hook-ups with weirdness he had before meeting Jen. This is a guy who had an AIDS test before ever having sex, just to reassure and please a potential score. He's the clown who after the first time thought "Why did I wait this long?" His second thought after the first time was "That was quick."
Of all the wackos he spends time with, Devin was especially crazy. Although she said she was fine with it, her upbringing was likely the reason for most of the craziness.
Her mom and grandma had been murdered in separate, unrelated incidents and she was raised by her sex-addicted father in a trailer park. Among the women he'd bring back to the trailer were Devin's teachers and moms of her friends. Devin, as a result, says she has a hard time getting physical with anyone. It took over a year for her to have sex with the guy she dated before meeting Lance.Read more ›
In his intro he describes a girl with cocaine under her pillow, a cutter, a bulemic and one who expected him to fight a guy...and yet these were not the stories featured! He had better ones. Some of the 'crazy' has a streak of sad underneath--that people are how they are--but the storytelling is what makes it a good read. Very enjoyable with a few insightful comments thrown in for good measure.
A nice, short, diverting read--Recommended!
Okay that all having been said I DID finish it. It DID keep my interest somewhat. Would I read it again? No.

In another lifetime, I feel like I might have been Max Lance. Or perhaps he's been reading my diary. These dates feel so uncomfortably true. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Jonathan Baker
