Assisted Loving True Tales of Double Dating With My Dad (Paperback)
|Author: Bob Morris|
What would you do if your eighty-year-old father dragged you into his hell-bent hunt for new love?
A few months after the death of his wife, Joe Morris, an affable, eccentric octogenarian, needs a replacement. If he can get a new hip, he figures, why not a new wife? At first, his skeptical son Bob (whose own love life is a disaster) is appalled. But suspicion quickly turns to enthusiasm as he finds himself trolling the personals, screening prospects, chaperoning, and offering etiquette tips to his needy father. "Assisted Loving" is a warm, witty, and wacky chronicle of a father, a son, and their year of dating dangerously.
