About this title:
From the Author: What I was trying to accomplish with this novel was to, hopefully, draw a darkly humorous picture of the behavioral and intellectual patterns being woven in contemporary relationships, and to do it strictly from the point of view of single men. Over the past 30 years or so the vast majority of the discourse on romantic relationships has come from the perspective of women lamenting the unsuitability of available male mates--much of it done in a shallow Cosmopolitan magazine manner with the emphasis on guys who are afraid of commitment or don't want to stop playing the field ... blah, blah, blah. Well, the four main characters in STILL LOOKING--while certainly suffering from the modern societal malady of intimacy apprehension and not exactly being nobly heroic figures--pretty much blow to smithereens the glib notions as to the kinds of things men talk about with each other. But, again hopefully, in their basically tragi-comic struggle to make romantic connections they help provide some insight into precisely how deeply-rooted and complex are the sets of behaviors that have relegated huge numbers of men and women both to a perpetual state of "still looking."
