From Library Journal:

Polish emigre Jan Majeski has a common problem: He is bored with his love life. So he casts about Paris for some excitement and becomes fascinated with a small poster of a lady lion tamer. Of course he falls instantly in love and, romantic that he is, dedicates his life to finding her. Thus begins a fantasy quest that purports finally to teach him the true meaning of love. But Blagowidow's third novel (his previous works include Operation Parterre, LJ 1/15/83) falls short of this goal; instead, it provides standard mid-life-crisis fare in a simple, episodic pattern that neither stimulates nor illustrates the workings of love. Chivalric knights found the quest for love its own reward, but in this case readers need not make the trip. Paul E. Hutchison, English Dept., Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park
