Read full description of the books:
Ann is sixty and suffering from celibacy. Going through two divorces has made her skittish; having two children has made her cautious. But finally her longing for sex and romance sends her hurtling out of her comfort zone. Her adventure begins with a very nice transvestite and gets more interesting from there. Put a divorcee raised in the 1950s into the Internet world, and this is what you get: a comic romp that evolves into a profound and touching experience, complete with some meaty moral questions and answers. Ranging from Montclair, New Jersey to Harare, Zimbabwe, Daring to Date Again: A Memoir is a compelling, often racy memoir of one woman s late-life adventures with sex and dating in the modern world."

DARING TO DATE AGAIN is the witty, insightful, and profound account of what happened when she started dating again at 60. She began her adventures dancing with a delightful transvestite, her first real date in twelve years was with a policeman 25 her junior, she traveled to Zimbabwe to spend a month with a man she knew only through emails, and landed, in the end, close to home.
Who Should Read It:
• People wondering if what they thought was the right way to live is indeed the right way to live.
• People bruised from divorce who want to feel fully alive again
• Women of a certain age
• Younger women who wonder what it is like to be a woman of a certain age
• Men who want to know what all those women are thinking
THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY begins in a childhood shared by most American women born in the 1940s -- they were trained to be someone’s wife. By the time Evans finishes graduate school in 1964 she has not found a husband. Besides, amid the hippies and the social upheaval, marriage is losing its importance. She leaves New York in 1965, with $400 in her pocket and does not return for eleven years. She immerses herself in the cultures of Italy, Spain, Israel, and Greece. The book shares a spirit of adventure, compassion, and rebelliousness with Henry James’s original The Portrait of a Lady, published in 1881
