We're all chasing the big happy but when you're single, pushing 30 and working as a mobile DJ at weddings and bar mitzvahs, it can seem a long way off. Meet David Holden, ex-kids' TV producer, aspiring novelist and returning hero of Mebus's Booty Nomad. He's hit it off with a neurotic girl called Janey but seems more hung up on sabotaging his gal pal Annie's wedding to 'Rat Boy', via some naked hula-hooping and hallucinogenic arm cream. Mebus's honest insights from the dating front line and sarky New York smarts give just the right ratio of mush to mayhem.
