Nine Wives

A novel by

Henry Mann is a 32-year-old bachelor who has spent the last few years watching everyone he knows get married. After the most recent wedding, where an intoxicated Henry proposes to no less than three women (including the rabbi), it dawns on him that being single isn't that much fun after all.

"Enough to put Bridget Jones to shame." - Helen Schulman, author of P.S.
