English Summary/英文概要： Burdened with a face only a mother could love, Stan Cattermole determined to find a woman. Lugging his man-boobs along for the ride, Stan shows Bridget Jones how it’s done in this hilarious, heart-wrenching and often outrageous account of his quest for love. This is no misery memoir, but a tell-it-like-it-is account of Stan’s trials, tribulations and small triumphs, in and out of the bedroom. One part love story, one part family saga, eight parts outrageous, laugh-out-loud tragicomedy - and then, just for luck, another part love story - The Intimate Adventures of an Ugly Man wrenches at the heart strings and the funny bone, and will drag you screaming with laughter through the whole gamut of human emotions. CHORTLE! as Stan pops his cyber-cherry with the aid of a light sabre, a bowling ball and a large knob of butter. GASP! as Stan is blindfolded, tied to a bed and abused with an IKEA spatula. DESPAIR! as the pretty nose of yet another potential love interest wrinkles in utter, utter disgust. The story of one man overcoming his hurdles and making something wonderful of a miserable life, this ever-hopeful tale will resonate with anyone who’s suffered pain and rejection, anyone who’s vowed to transform their life and anyone who’s ever learned to laugh in the face of adversity. About the Author Stan Cattermole is the nom de plume of an ugly man. In his early thirties, he is no Billie Piper. Despite his best endeavours, he remains ugly and he thus chooses to remain anonymous for the better good of the nation.
Chinese Summary/中文概要： 这本书作者有着一张丑陋的面孔，他决定寻找真爱，经历了愉快，令人心痛的，记录肆无忌惮的寻爱过程。这不是一本痛苦的传记，更像是记录了作者的尝试，苦难，小小的胜利。一个爱情故事，一个家庭纪实，八个可笑的悲喜剧。诙谐幽默的笔锋写出了人类的不同情感。讲述了一个男人克服自身障碍，使悲惨的生活增添一份乐趣。这本书让正在遭受痛苦挫折或是想改变自己生活的人们产生共鸣。我们应该学会如何笑对困境。(RY)
