WORTH READING

Diaries, photos capture snippets of others' lives


By Anne E. Stein
Special to the Tribune
Published December 21, 2005

"Rescue Me, He's Wearing a Moose Hat: And 40 Other Dates After 50," by Sherry Halperin (Seal, $13.95)

Yes, a guy showed up on a date with the Los Angeles-based author wearing a moose hat. Another quickly revealed that he sold sex toys for a living. A third was a television producer who screamed at "his" show's actors while he and Halperin watched TV. Then he disappeared into the next room to snort cocaine, emerged with a joint and calmly ignored Halperin, who soon left.

At age 51, Sherry Halperin jumped back into dating a year after losing her beloved husband of 26 years. She encounters young men and old, wealthy admirers and struggling suitors. Halperin chronicles her 40 most memorable dates with a sense of humor and honesty that is entertaining and scary enough to make anyone reconsider dating with such vigor. Does she find someone? Not in the long-term sense, at least at this book's writing, but she does become happily single and satisfied with life.
