Nick frequents New York''s indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and playing the bass with his queercore band, The Jerk Offs.

In 1882, philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche is helped by Josef Breuer, a Viennese doctor who is one of the founders of psychoanalysis, to fight his hemicrania and despair.
Inspector Jacques Clouseau, a name that strikes fear into the hearts of criminals everywhere--and anyone else he comes across as well. Maybe it''s because his deductive powers are so inadequate, his grasp of the obvious so elusive, his command of the language so severely limited and his physical coordination so completely lacking. But while his approach may be unorthodox and often confounding, he always manages to solve the crime--in his own fashion. At least until now. World famous soccer coach Yves Gluant has just led Team France to victory over Team China. Surrounded by grateful adoring fans and his beautiful lover, the international pop star Xania, Gluant is felled by a poisoned dart. In the ensuing panic, Gluant''s priceless diamond ring, "The Pink Panther," mysteriously disappears. The murder becomes a media sensation and a national obsession. Cracking the case falls to Chief Inspector Dreyfus, who is up for the prestigious Medal of Honor--for the seventh time. Aware that he cannot afford to make a single mistake--at least none that can be attributed to him--Dreyfus presses the indefatigable Inspector Clouseau into service. Closeau and his new assistant, the steadfast, stoic Gendarme Gilbert Ponton, follow a tangle of clues that leads them all over Paris and, eventually, New York City. In the Big Apple, Clouseau and Ponton and travel to Times Square and the nearby diamond district, as well as to the city''s posh Fifth Avenue and the renowned Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Along the way, Clouseau and Ponton are waylaid by elusive diamond cutters, would-be thugs, notorious bandits, smarmy casino owners, secret agents, mysterious trainers and an exotic beverage called "The Flaming Mojito." One by one, Clouseau narrows his search and tracks down the most likely suspects. They include Xania, a spurned soccer star, a millionaire casino owner and a flirtatious P.R. publicist. Clouseau''s process is fascinating, if harrowingly circuitous. But he never loses his focus, his purpos
Pushed to the breaking-point after their latest, "why can''t you do this one little thing for me?" argument, art dealer Brooke calls it quits with her boyfriend, Gary, who hosts bus tours of Chicago. What follows is a series of remedies, war tactics, overtures and underminings suggested by the former couple''s friends, confidantes and the occasional total stranger. When neither ex is willing to move out of the condo they used to share, the only solution is to continue living as hostile roommates until somebody caves. But somewhere between protesting the pool table in the living room, the dirty clothes stacked in the kitchen cupboards and the sports played at sleep-killing volume in the middle of the night, Brooke begins to realize that what she may be really fighting for isn''t so much the place but the person.

But back in high school in New Jersey in the 1990''s, Chris was shy, overweight and the butt of the cool crowd''s jokes. The only bright spot in his life was his friendship with Jamie Palamino a super-popular cheerleader. But Chris was harboring a secret--he was hopelessly in love with his best friend.

The well-known fact that Chris and Sam used to date, and that she still carries a torch for him, makes it all the more hellish. The less than talented Sam doesn''t feel she can "create" unless Chris whisks her off to Paris. En route, a plane malfunction causes them to make an unexpected pit-stop in New Jersey--the first time Chris has been back in 10 years. Chris'' plans to only stay the night are detoured when he runs into Jamie working at the local bar. Suddenly faced with the chance to undo the past and "seal the deal" with the "just friends" girl of his dreams, Chris finds himself postponing Paris. This sets off a chain of events in which Chris tries to woo Jamie, all the while distracting the suspicious Samantha. Unbelievably, Chris is finding it more difficult to romance Jamie than it was 10 years ago. Can one escape the clutches of the ''friend zone?'' Is it possible to go from ''just friend'' to boyfriend? Chris is about to find out the hard way.
