KIRKUS REVIEW

Middle-aged film publicist Anne Cumming leches after young boys in print. Her odyssey consists of a diary of 50 or 60 ""accidental"" meetings with underaged men, and then the not-so-accidental seductions of said potent post-adolescents in such varied locales as airports, Roman villas, basement fiats in London, and even--really--a hospital bed, where our heroine is recovering from some sort of undefined and temporary (but total) paralysis. This is ridiculous. Especially since the curtain is generally drawn on her sex scenes just as they're heating up, leaving us with only her literary (but not too literate) leer to attest to Cumming's goings.
