'An honest and deeply chilling account of what it's like to suffer from a compulsion to look for love in what are most definitely the wrong places' Elle
For Sue Silverman, the wrong places to look for love include: At the end of a phone, when a stranger calls her college dorm late night and asks what she's wearing.
