The Columnist by Jeffrey Frank

The Columnist by Jeffrey Frank is supposedly a humorous fake biography about a columnist in Washington DC.

Unfortunately it's just not funny. We get close to parity occasionally. There is an oversexed version of the McLaughlin Group [as frightening as that sounds] but nothing really funny here. The book is all about sex and how everybody is sleeping around on everybody else. Problem is it's just not funny. The Flashman series by George Macdonald Fraser was able to make sex funny this book did not.

Not recommended! The book was recently remaindered so there are many copies for $1.

Is available through Abebooks.
