The Year of Loving Dangerously

Ted Rall

It's New York City in the 1980s, and Ted Rall is in college. Everything is fine before his pranks, lack of focus, and restlessness get him expelled. Unable to find a job and rejected by his parents, he considers suicide. By happenstance he finds comfort in the arms of many women as he bed-hops around the five boroughs. It's better than homelessness, but the psychic toll of selling himself and his affection was higher than he imagined. Both acidly funny and brutally honest, Rall, a cartoonist both beloved and reviled for his edgy politics, pours out his guts in this remembrance of this most difficult chapter in his life.

Praise for this book

"Many of the book's most memorable passages consider the ambiguous intersections between sexual desire and economic destitution, albeit with Rall's characteristic blunt wit." --New York Press
"He was more interested in well-stocked refrigerators than impending sexual adventures. Realistically illustrated in soft colors by Callejo, of Bluesman (2004-06) fame, and maximally unbuttoned in some places, Rall's sympathetic account of his life on the edge encourages identifying with a situation so desperate that his outrageous choices seem necessary." --Booklist
