PAIRS, by D.W. Richards
In his engaging and hilarious new novel, Canadian author D. W. Richards takes a voyeuristic and often spiritual look into the lives of two enthusiastically racy couples while playing with preconceived notions of gender roles and orientations. The wildest ride of the year!
"Pairs" is a Finalist in the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards
An Amazon UK Best Seller.
In no particular order, spiritualism, home renovation, etymology, psychic aptitude, quantum physics, Wicca, and Jungian teachings, are all braided seamlessly into a frequently humorous, sometimes outrageous, and often enlightening storyline that explores the nuances of romantic love and friendship between four very different yet equally engaging individuals. Meet
KAYLEY, single mom of a psychically gifted four-year-old daughter, ekes out a living writing greeting cards in spite of her literary aspirations. She knows she probably shouldn’t get involved with
ADAM, the gorgeous younger man with a generous heart who comes to repair her basement, also the cousin of
HENRY, a math teacher with nineteenth century values who has recently decided he is not gay, especially once he lays eyes on
ALEXANDRA a playful but wounded former stripper making a place for herself in the “straight” world who entrances and heals everyone around her.
Excerpt from PAIRS:
"The pieces came together for Adam in a painful leap of maturity. His head dropped, his eyes closed and he let out a long exhale that fell, in octave and duress, between a sigh and a groan. Adam understood that it really didn’t matter that nothing had happened. He was alone with a former stripper, watching her pole dance, while his likely soon to be ex-girlfriend was at the same party. He groaned a second time."

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
There is a lot of humor here, especially the character Kayley's grandmother, whom we never meet, but whose deftly sprinkled stream-of-consciousness phone calls are expertly crafted, and reminded me of the razor-sharp prologues to both parts of ‘Angels in America’."
- The New Podler Review of Books
Pairs transported me from daily life into a witty, sexy, and romantic tale that had me rooting for the happiness of the characters I was falling in love with. This romance for grown-ups shows how love and friendship can bring out the very best and worst in us, and does it so charmingly well I had a hard time putting it down.”
- Karen Opas, writer for Saturday Night Magazine,
the Globe & Mail, and "C" Magazine
It is a skilled writer who can thread together adult themes and the preternatural gifts of a young child into a book that entertains, teaches, and inspires. Pairs is a story that not only shakes up ideas about gender and love, it also challenges the traditional concept of family. I highly recommend it.”
- Melissa Levine, Independent Professional Book Reviewers
D. W. Richards has a knack for writing women, getting into the female mindset, and he demonstrates this talent once again in Pairs. He also shows a flair for creating quirky characters, which leaves the reader to ask: “Do these types of characters actually exist in his world?” The answer: Most likely – because they are too real to the author to be otherwise.Open Pairs, grab a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy."
