Oom who escaped apartheid with his wife and settled in Canada loses her years later to breast cancer. He retires, and then decides to start dating again with hilarious results. He takes readers from one dating encounter to the next with vivid portrayals of colourful and humorous characters - ladies with small dogs, those with large ones. A woman with her muscle car, and another with a donkey. You will learn about the difference between a meeting and a proper date, and discover one woman's date rules that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. He recalls his childhood in Cape Town with stories of true-life characters that are used to compliment those of his encounters on the online dating scene. The light-hearted and humorous episodes are brilliantly counterbalanced with more poignant, moving memories and incidents that leave the reader with a feeling of deep emotion, and sometimes sorrow. This is the funniest book as well as the most touching you will read this year.
