Sinopsis:

SHE PUT THE SEX INTO SEXAGENARIAN!

Monica Porter, a sixty-year-old grandmother, thinks her sex life is over when she is ditched by her long-term partner. But then she joins a dating website, and finds that her age acts as an aphrodisiac to hordes of highly-sexed young men, who fantasise about ‘hot older women’.

Monica throws caution to the wind, as she embarks on one exciting assignation after the other, having the wildest time of her life. Naturally her sons would be horrified at the risks she takes, not to mention mortified by her escapades with men younger than themselves. But it’s not a problem, as she has no intention of telling them.

But there is another hazard to consider... not to her physical being, but to her psyche. Gradually her year of dating dangerously affects her entire outlook on relationships with men, and not in a good way. How will it all end? And will it have been worth the price?

Witty, funny and full of thoughtful observations about sex and relationships, Monica Porter’s ‘yummy grand-mummy’ memoir is the first of its kind. Some readers may be shocked by Monica’s lifestyle, but most will cheer her gung-ho spirit, and secretly envy her hit rate with London’s cool young dudes!

About the Author:

Born in Budapest and raised in New York, Monica Porter has been a London-based journalist since the Seventies.

Raven: My year of dating dangerously... is her fifth book.

Reviews for Monica Porter’s previous books:

The Paper Bridge: A Return to Budapest
“Charming, unaffected... A sincere, essentially saddening book.” - Sunday Telegraph

“Her book was first published 30 years ago. Reissued now in a new edition, it permits another kind of travel – time travel – though its astute observations bear up well to the scrutiny of history.” - Daily Mail

“Of all the books timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the revolutions of 1989, The Paper Bridge may have the most charm. It is an elegant account of a visit the author made to Hungary, the land of her birth, a few years before those dramatic months when the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe fell apart.” - Mail on Sunday

Deadly Carousel: A Singer's Story of the Second World War
“Immensely readable...with the unerring eye of a journalist Monica Porter traces every event and character.” - Jewish Chronicle

“Monica Porter’s book evokes the seesaw world of Forties Budapest – lurching from the Nazis into the arms of the Communists – with skill and sensitivity.” - Daily Telegraph

“Gripping memoir, and a salute to the spirit of Hungary.” - The Observer
