When college instructor Dewan Gibson leaves Cleveland for California, he expects to find a world of breast implants, beer and beaches. Instead he enters a secret and ill-fated romance with a Middle Eastern undergraduate. Through vivid narrative written in a conversational tone, Gibson attempts to overcome his forbidden love affair by jumping into an office fling gone wrong (Tijuana Mornings), traveling across the world to Denmark in hopes of meeting Ms. Booty Mama (Arhus Ain't for Lovers) and musing over the interracial relationships between his African-American uncles and rural white women that wore 1980's big bangs and resembled Guns N Roses groupies (Too Much Tupac). Toeing the line between stable adulthood and post-college debauchery, Gibson presents a comically honest look at the frailty of modern relationships. Poignant, witty and at times downright hilarious--The Imperfect Enjoyment is a memoir of toxic relationships and the search for a second chance at love that enlightens and amuses as very few books do.

Review: The Imperfect Enjoyment

User Review  - Robynn Young - Goodreads

Language a bit harsh in spots, but somehow the author maintains grace in his prose. Extremely funny, an actual LOL book. Also, brings up issues related to Muslim/non-Muslim dating and interracial relationships in general. Loved it. Read full review
