Love Comes Lately (2007)

Love Comes Lately (2007)

Though approaching his eighties, Jewish writer Max Kohn shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to pursue his love life with youthful vigor on his frequent book tours, risking his relationship with the woman he loves but neglects.

“A wildly buoyant tale of a geriatric imagination fired up on mental Viagra.”

Singer wrote, in one of three stories on which Love Comes Lately is based: “The brain wouldn't accept old age. It teemed with the same passions as it had in his youth”. With his fame and charm, our octogenarian writer-protagonist still attracts women, in both dreams and reality, and it’s difficult for him and for us to tell the difference. His long-time current lover, a past lover, and new propositions caper amongst his fantasies and his chaotic life, while his mortality preoccupies both spheres.
