This is a whole new level of science fiction, it almost needs it's own separate genre. It is quite unique to find a character who seems like an average assistant professor, but he is actually an alien who has been sent to relay information of human existence back to his own creator. What is most unique about him, is his abnormally large penis. It has more than one purpose, besides the obvious one, it acts as a beacon to communicate with the aliens who have sent him to study humans.

The book mainly focuses on Lorenzostein's out of control and urgent sexual needs. Even though he responds with anger at his wife's sexual desires, he himself has a side relationship with a mistress.

I found the whole book to be quite strange and extremely unique, unlike any other book I've ever read. The main focus of the book is on Lorenzostein, but it lacks a lot of dialogue which I thought might have made this book a bit more intriguing and interesting. I would almost say it's a bit asinine.  I would rate this book a 4/5 for his dry humor and unique style of writing.
