Mary Geneva – Nicknames: Tales from the Shallow End of the Manhattan Dating Pool
There are a million bad dates in the city that never sleeps. Mary Geneva has been on 999,999 of them. When she moved to Manhattan in her mid-20s, Mary imagined being single in New York City would be like something out of a Hollywood movie. And it was—a horror movie. Nicknames is a look at some of the most hopeless, horrendous, and frequently hilarious dates you can imagine. Mary shares her true-life adventures looking for Mr. Right in the treacherous New York dating scene. You’ll meet men so bizarre their names have been changed to protect the guilty. Our cast of characters includes: Crazy Eyes, who didn’t just resemble an escapee from the local mental hospital, but proved he probably belonged there; James Bond, the mysterious South African with the secret life; Germ Sperm, a guy so classy, he actually named himself Germ Sperm! And many, many, many more. Part memoir, part self-help book, Nicknames will have you laughing out loud… and possibly abstaining from dating forever.
