Alternatives to Sex

Stephen McCauley's Alternatives to Sex: real estate, nervous breakdowns, cleaning, vacuuming, drinking, spilling secrets, and making human connections.

My alternatives to sex: swimming, running, weight lifting, and dieting. I suppose I'd do some cleaning in my free time, but I don't really get a kick out of it.

Alternatives to Sex was the first book I read this year. It has so many funny one-liners that I'm already using. A wonderful thing about this book is that a character from another McCauley's novel makes an appearance! I don't enjoy the Boston / Cambridge area that much, but McCauley manages to make me want to imagine living there with all these odd characters.
