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 Memoiris a compelling, often racy memoir of one woman's late-life adventures with sex and dating in the modern world.

Editorial Reviews

".funny and introspective, filled with compassion and written without an ounce of affectation or disingenuousness.. Her explorations are illuminating. They're also a kick, with a surprisingly uplifting effect. A candid, breezy memoir that may inspire even the most dating-averse."—Kirkus Reviews"A wise, witty memoir about a woman of a certain age who boldly and unapologetically seeks-and finds sexual adventure, and surprises herself by discovering love in the process."—Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan Train"Women of any age will fi nd inspiration in Ann Anderson Evans' compelling tale of romantic adventure and self-reinvention. Want to know how not to act old? Live as if your story can still have the happiest of endings."—Pamela Redmond Satran, author of New York Times bestseller How Not To Act Old"Daring to Date Again is a lively, witty, achingly honest, well-crafted account of one woman's emergence from twelve years of celibacy to become a sexual enthusiast in her sixties. You'll laugh-and sometimes worry!-as Ann jumps into bed with her Mr. Right-for-the- Moment parade. She wears her heart on her sleeve-or she wears nothing at all-and we share her adventures."—Joan Price, author of Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex"Ann Anderson Evans details how a sophisticated lady of the Internet era opens doors to serious relationships [This is] a manual for sexy, smart people of a certain age, of either sex."—Ford Burkhart, Pulitzer Prize Winner, former editor at The New York Times"Daring to Date Again: A Memoir is a sassy internet dating memoir with an attitude. . One doesn't expect wit along with the wisdom, but it's there. What's also unexpected is the spirit of adventure in a sixty-something who is willing to travel halfway across the world to Zimbabwe to meet an internet contact-but it's there, too. Most surprising of all is the quest for sexuality in older years: something few dating books even discuss. The result is best viewed as a rollicking train ride that leads to a few wrecks, excitement, and a lot of fun." —D. Donovan, Sr. eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
