What would you do if your eighty-year-old father dragged you into his hell-bent hunt for new love?

A few months after the death of his wife, Joe Morris, an affable, eccentric octogenarian, needs a replacement. If he can get a new hip, he figures, why not a new wife? At first, his skeptical son Bob (whose own love life is a disaster) is appalled. But suspicion quickly turns to enthusiasm as he finds himself trolling the personals, screening prospects, chaperoning, and offering etiquette tips to his needy father. Assisted Loving is a warm, witty, and wacky chronicle of a father, a son, and their year of dating dangerously.

A frequent contributor to theNew York TimesSunday Styles section, Bob Morris has been a commentator for NPR'sAll Things Consideredand a contributor to theNew York Times Magazine,The New Yorker, andTravel + Leisure. He also collaborated with Diahann Carroll on her award-winning memoir,The Legs Are the Last to Go.
