No More Mr. Nice Guy by Howard Jacobson
Book DescriptionFrank Ritz is a television critic. His partner, Melissa Paul, is the author of pornographic novels for liberated women. He watches crap all day; she writes crap all day. It's a life. Or it was a life. But now they're fighting, locked in oral combat. He won't shut up and she is putting her finger down her throat again. So there's only one thing for it - Frank has to go. But go where? And do what? Frank Ritz has been on heat more or less continuously since he could speak his own name. Let him out of the house and his first instinct is to go looking for sex. Deviant sex, treacherous sex, even straight sex, so long as it's immoderate - he's never been choosy. But what happens when sex is all you know but no longer what you want?

UK Kirkus Review » When 50-year-old Frank Ritz is told to leave by his longtime partner, he sets out west in his car to recapture a past in which sexual conquest was his main, or perhaps only, motivation. However, as he travels through the scenes of his debauchery, he realizes his exploits were never as carefree as he thought they were and what he was looking for probably wasn't just a few seconds of joy. Jacobson explodes the myth of the male sex drive through the humorous confessional of a man who finds that, when his sexual ego starts to wane, he cannot find anything to replace it. (Kirkus UK)
