FEATURED BOOK - NOW AVAILABLE!THE DECADE OF BLIND DATES
BY RICHARD ALTHER
Peter Bauman, 45, a gay divorced painter, plunges into the personal ads just prior to the Internet. He first dates a Connecticut physician, a rabid Republican. Another tryst interrupted by his son, Peter is caught naked two-stepping with a tattooed punk. Next, he's snowbound with a geek heavier than advertised, who arrives with a bag of sex toys. Best pal Barry, a Head Start director, counsels him to look between the eyes before the legs.
Peter paints a portrait of his ex-wife Becky and relives their loving relationship. Barry confides the abuse he withstood for 25 years with his ex, Len, who while entertaining tricks, forced him to live in the cellar. A gender-bending soap-opera star briefly enchants Peter with his virtuosity. Then, while painting a portrait of his friend Arlene, Peter is seduced into an affair with her. Barry is furious, as is Peter's daughter who encourages her dad to be gay.
Diagnosed with prostate cancer, Peter paints his first love, Luke, long dead of AIDS. Peter survives surgery but temporarily loses his erection. Pre-Viagra, he conquers the penis pump and relishes a personal trainer whom Barry labels a boy-toy. After a portrait of his brilliant mentor, Lee, Peter delves deeper into abstract oils. A year-long link with a handsome, stern Maine woodsman doesn't jell. Peter is enthralled by a British aristocrat patron who declines further intimacy because of his AIDS. Barry reveals Len slept with Barry's then best friend.
Peter paints his mother, Geraldine, a victim of incest, and confronts his habit of adaptive behavior. He dumps a vacuous date and learns of Barry's beating by Len. He starts to paint Barry, but switches to a self-portrait, exposing his focus on sex to avoid real commitment. For the first time in ten years, he allows his true feelings to emerge. During a decade of sex and shenanigans, Peter, encouraged by his ex-wife, daughter, and son, examines his life and, at last, discovers his soul mate. CLICK ON BOOK COVER FOR MORE INFORMATION.
