Literary editor Joel Miller galumphs through this sad-sack tale of love won and lost with the low-level energy of a three-toed sloth. Reader Ernie Schwartz makes a gallant effort to infuse energy into the lackadaisical lothario, but to no avail. Has Joel made his girlfriend, Lisa, pregnant? By the time the question is answered, it doesn't matter. Listeners expecting the usual romantic comedy sequence of boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back will be disappointed with the disjointed episodes of poor Miller's life. Also, Schwartz's bizarre pronunciations of simple words like "khakis" and steak "tartar" bounce the reader right out of Miller's tiny universe.
