In this unique exploration of love, psychoanalysis and male sexuality, the protagonist must struggle with a deteriorating marriage, the loss of his ability to speak English, a philandering alter ego and incessant fantasies about hooking-up with young women. All of these disorienting conflicts are played out at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. On the protagonist’s last day in Beijing, his alter ego persuades him to visit a high-end brothel where he is overcome with desire for a beautiful young prostitute. He must then choose between a life of carnal pleasure and love for his wife.

LilSander



by Lawrence L. Schwartz

In honor of the passing of Fred Sander, one IPBooks’ first and favorite authors, We would like to again feature his book, Created in Our Own Images.com.

My own personal contact with Fred spanned the better part of a year in 2010 as the production manager and typesetter for this book. I found him always to be warm, enthusiastic, and welcoming with a fun-loving spirit, and open to discussing ideas as we shared several articles and links along the way–and some long phone conversations–whether relating tangentially to the book, or at times just for fun.
