“Love and Other Hazards” is a novel about urban singles stumbling toward fulfillment in an odyssey of sex, love and parenting. Each accompanied by their young daughters who are schoolmates, Glenda Fieldston and Eugene Lerman assess each other for the first time while Glenda’s daughter is studying the details of a statue at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Then the families go their separate ways, but not for long.
Glenda is hired as a consultant to upgrade the computer system of a medical publishing company where Eugene is an editor. The process takes longer than expected and a complicated friendship begins. She is still a fiercely independent woman, while he is unwillingly independent having been left by his wife. The question is whether they can break out of their previous mindsets, freeing themselves to explore uncharted love.
