9780060196035: In Search Of an Impotent Man: A Novel

Potent as a dose of Viagra and hilarious as any modern woman's love life, In Search of an Impotent Man is a profoundly irreverent look at one irrepressible woman's search for Mr. Right.

Carmen Legg is a thirty-something, flame-haired, BMW-driving temptress who has everything she could possibly want--except peace of mind. She can't sit through a business meeting without men ogling her legs; she can't come home after an eternal workday without fending off advances from her oversexed boyfriend. What she needs, Carmen decides, is a man with more meaningful things on his mind. So, like many contemporary single women, she hopes to find her Prince Charming by placing an ad in the personals, describing a wish distinctly her own:

Wanted: Clear-thinking male
Attractive, successful 35-year-old
woman seeks man for good times, days
out, nights in, companionship.
Must be intelligent and impotent.

In response to the ad, Carmen meets a colorful array of men, ranging from an outrageously wealthy baron to a motorcycle-riding James Dean look-alike to a divorced father who works with computers. Sharing every step of her adventures with her lively octogenarian neighbor, Elvira, her best friend Laura, a level-headed therapist named Isabella, and a good witch who specializes in cures for impotency, Carmen gradually begins to see that abstaining from sex isn't necessarily the clearest path to clear-thinking relationships.

Sassy and wholly entertaining, In Search of an Impotent Man is a story about a woman who is not afraid to take matters into her own hands and turn the assumptions about romantic love on their head.
