Saving the Hooker

By Michael Adelberg
The Permanent Press, $28.00, 192 pages

Matthew Hristahalois has a weird obsession. He finds himself always enamored by hookers. Not real ones, but the heart of gold imaginary hookers seen on TV and movies. For his fellowship at NYU, he decides to write about hookers, both the real and imaginary. Matthew meets up with a hooker that goes by the name Julie Roberts, and the two embark on a crazy funny journey.

The book is from the warped mind of Michael Adelberg. It is a great comical satire on the male ego and the image that men project onto women. The plot is clever enough to keep people entertained and the main character is likable enough to enjoy reading about his misadventures. The stock characters don’t feel as real as the main, but that’s okay. The fake feel of the supporting cast makes the book much more palatable, by reminding the reader that this is all fake. It plays off great with the idea of love and what is real love. Maybe there is no real true love, but I do love this book.
