From Library Journal
Sex advice columns provide enlightenment for the erotically challenged as well as voyeuristic entertainment, and the aptonymic Savage delivers on both counts. Channeling Dr. Ruth through the acid pen of H.L. Mencken, he leaves no fool unskewered while delivering startlingly frank, howlingly funny, and consistently excellent guidance for the intimate dilemmas of straights, gays, and everyone else. With his six-year-old column now syndicated in 16 newspapers, Savage maintains that his gayness gives him an advantage in his craft. Certainly his large hetero fan club?as well as this book?testify to his catholic skills. Dingbat-lovers, beware. Savage does not use four-letter words so much as wear them, with considerable and appropriate impact. The unique effect is of old-fashioned common sense, unconstrained by political correctness and cloaked in ultraradical lingo. Especially recommended for libraries in urban and university locations and wherever Savage Love is syndicated.?Martha Cornog, American Coll. of Physicians, Philadelphia
