Classic love story:
boy meets girl;
girl meets Zeus;
boy loses girl.

A sophisticated romp racing from Madison Avenue through the production of a play even more cursed than Macbeth to sectarian violence in a Polynesian paradise until thunderbolts rain down from Mt. Olympus itself.


DO THE MATH: a novel of the inevitable

Math professor plus romance novelist equals a marriage of heart and mind. He is writing a theory of inevitability. She reunites lovers who have been separated for decades. Sadly for her, she does that once too often.

Foreword Reviews:...engages readers with a tone of sarcastic amusement that invites them to laugh at the easily sketched foibles of the entire cast. The book's many observations on the formulaic, but also unpredictable, nature of love make it a joy to read.

The US Review of Books: Do The Math is a love story told in such a way that it appeals to men and women, to the naive and the jaded, to algebra whizzes and those with math phobias. Do the Math is in the vein of John Kennedy O'Toole's great A Confederacy of Dunces. It is funny, clever and original in a way that pulls the reader into its farcical, hugely entertaining storyline.
