Six is a tender, erotic comedy about a celebrated actor with an unusual quality. Every woman he dares to sleep with becomes pregnant with his child... Gifted or cursed, Felix Dern has loved, certainly, but have these loves ever lasted? Only perhaps in this one particular way.Lix's six children are a constant reminder of what he did, with whom, and all in the pursuit of an elusive dream. Set in the glorious "City of Kisses", this seamless novel charts the sexual history of a loving, baffled man through an original and mischievous exploration of attraction, polarity, and everything in between.
