Anny Applebaum is sixty-five and she wants fame, fortune, sex and undying love. She writes “The Viagra Diaries,” a San Francisco weekly column researching love after sixty. She places ads on Internet singles sites and interviews men over sixty. Is love possible in the Viagra generation?
Publishers Weekly - “...Anny's restless and sweetly funny search for true love, meaningful work, and a happy family is ageless--and a poignant portrait of a generation that's not yet ready to fade away."
Kirkus Review - “A smart, witty, sometimes hilarious coming-of-age novel for and about the boomer generation. This realistic and funny novel will appeal to women of all ages, while men should find it attractively controversial."
Booklist Review - “While most contemporary women's fiction focuses on the plight of the twentysomething, Brooker's novel is a refreshing glimpse at love after 60... a nontraditional-dating story, The Viagra Diaries is frank, open, and fun.
