Deborah Solomon of the New York Times Magazine interviewed Marks about his work and his book. Two of their exchanges:
Have you sent [your parents] a copy of your book?"I haven’t yet found the right woman to settle down with" is another way to characterize the "one-night stand?"
No. Not yet. I’m a little nervous about how they may react to the personal content.
Yes, you do write about an alarming number of one-night stands.
That’s kind of trashy-sounding. I would prefer to say I haven’t yet found the right woman to settle down with.
Thanks a lot, Stephen Marks -- that's just the kind of bad PR that'll hurt single guys everywhere.
