Love & Other Recreational Sports

John Dearie ’86 (Viking)

After breaking up with his cheating fiancee, Wall Street banker Jack reluctantly re-enters the dating game, and readers of this novel enter a male perspective of women, romance, sex and life in general. Jack’s funny, philosophical friend Alex, who watches reruns of Oprah to find out what women want from a man; his co-worker Karen, who shares stories of her disastrous love life; and the happily married Ted, who says marriage is always a risk, round out this amusing view of relationships today. Jack, meanwhile, must decide whether an attorney named Sarah deserves a sporting chance.
