A man who jumps from one relationship to another
A Man Jumps Out of an Airplane by Barry YourgrauThis is Barry Yourgraus debut book, the one that put him on the literary map, where he remains a landmark of imaginative prowess.
In A Man Jumps Out of an Airplane, the author focuses his wide-awake subconscious mind on thematic standards--father, mother, lover, sex, the imagination itself--and recasts them into madcap parable, surrealistic fables, and grotesque fantasies. Here are dreamscapes compressed into razor-sharp prose, where a twelve inch girl lolls in her dates spaghetti, where a warrior steps out of the Iliadas an intruder in a backyard swimming pool, where a man climbs inside a cow on a bet.
Hilarious, subversive, and uniquely entertaining, Yourgrau treats readers to a circus of surreal, impish beauty, poignant flashes of tragedy, and a headstand of everyday reality.

Serial Monogamists: Why Some Women Jump From Relationship To Relationship
Skip navigation! Story from Health. We all know one. We might even be one. They go from one relationship to another with little time to breathe in between; breaking up with Tom one week and bringing James as their plus-one the next. And we tend to think certain things of serial monogamists. Mari Kovanen.
Why Do People Jump From One Relationship To the Next?
The most common piece of advice given to people who've just gone through a breakup is also the thing they least want to hear: You should really spend some time alone. To someone who's reeling from a heartbreak, or is suddenly sleeping alone in their bed for the first time in months, it feels condescending and cruel. It also directly contradicts the other extremely popular breakup platitude that insists the only way to get over a person is to "get under" someone else which is the advice Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber , and maybe even Bella Hadid and the Weeknd , seem to have recently followed. It sucks to be instructed to be alone. And what sucks even more is admitting that it's actually a pretty solid piece of advice.
But why do we feel the need to rebound? Is it heartbreak or loneliness? Maybe we haven't been on our own for months, years even, and we just aren't all that interested in switching up our lifestyles now, thank you very much. We all have our reasons, as well as our own ways to justify our actions. While women are notorious for rebounding in the forms of binge-partying, one-night stands and over-sharing on social media, men tend to take a different route altogether. It seems perfectly understandable.
