On Picking Fruit
A gay man on a quest to find his soul mate.
On Picking Fruit throws a hilarious new spin on dates from hell.
Dates from hell have never been so heavenly!
“In his earnest quest to find his true soul mate, Curtis is looking in all the wrong places.”
“In his earnest quest for happily ever after, Curtis is much too selective.”
—Curtis’ best friend
“In his earnest quest for a monogamous relationship, Curtis will sleep with anyone.”
Curtis Jenkins is a successful, middle-aged, HIV positive writer in Arthur Wooten's hilarious novel, ON PICKING FRUIT. Still searching for the man of his dreams, Jenkins is caught in a self-destructive spiral in which he's drawn to all the wrong men. When he makes a bizarre yet comical attempt at suicide he becomes a reluctant patient of psychiatrist Dr Magda Tunick, who makes him face up to the real reasons why he hasn't found love. The book has won rave reviews, with gay novelist Edmund White declaring: "If gallantry is defined as facing adversity with screams of laughter, this is the most gallant book I know." Wooten himself says: "I wanted to portray a man that is not defined by the virus and is living a thriving life. However, he comes across "dates" that are clueless about HIV and safer sex. Without preaching, the lead character fills them in on important details. The book is fast and breezy but also heartbreaking and full of hope."
