These are personal ads looking for love or companionship placed by the erudite readers of the London Review of Books. I found it absolutely hilarious. Best taken in small doses, this might make a suitable book for the loo when you have time to cheer your lonely heart. ( )

A collection of often hilarious personal ads from the "London Review of Books"; I don't know if I would answer any of the ads but it's intriguing to wonder how the hook ups would have turned out. Lots of good examples and seemingly a lot of men in their thirties still living with their mothers, and if none of the ads take your fancy, "They call me naughty Lola"'s index also contains a good biography of Evel Kneivel.

Much the same sort of thing as its sequel (https://www.librarything.com/work/9207300/reviews/67749168), which I happened to read first.

Light-hearted silliness for literate/literary intellectuals and wannabes. Some bizarre, some poignant, others knowingly snarky. As with the sequel, there’s a random appendix: this time, a run-down of the career of Evel Knievel (presumably ‘because’ one of the ads made passing reference to him). ( )

Yep, just page after page of personal ads. Some of them are quite funny, but most come off as desparate. I hope these people found other people because they really seem like the sort of people who need people; but some of them also seem downright loony. ( )

First, it's kind of sad how many of these I recognize from the LRB. Second, it's hilarious, and should be a permanent fixture in bathrooms. ( )
