Phyliss sent the quote and wrote:

The main character is in to music, as I am sure the author is as well. All three of his books are titled after song lyrics. Anyway, after an...ahem...private moment with himself the paragraph reads:

From Paris France, William also clued us in on this book:

Thank you Phyliss & William!
