Three and A Half VirginsPaperback - 2012
My name is Jimmy Hendricks and I'm a recovering idiot. So begins John Blumenthal's third novel, the moving story of a small-town New England entrepreneur with a proble-matical name who reacts to the abrupt, unanticipated dissolution of his marriage by revisiting the past, and finds himself haunted by memories of three virgins, each of whom he tricked and betrayed twenty years before. Overcome by remorse and tantalized by curiosity, he vows to wipe the slate clean. The result is an ironic tale of deceit, suspense, love and redemption that transports readers back and forth through time, and ultimately suggests that the past is not necessarily prologue (along with answering the pressing question: What the hell is half a virgin?) John Blumenthal is the author of What's Wrong with Dorfman? and Millard Fillmore, Mon Amour. He has also written for television and is the co-author of the movies Blue Streak and Short Time. He currently contributes to The Huffington Post.
