    One thought on “Confessions Of A Lady Killer”

    1. Solid academic satire. I did see recently that Stade came out with another novel a few years ago which seems to have similar themes.

    2. Read this in a high school ethics class . . . I think the author was a friend of the teacher, Dr. Sipple. I'd like to look at it again.
