Less Is Lost | Andrew Sean Greer

Pickpick

Arthur Less, charmingly hapless author at large, is on the road again in this sequel, taking on a series of miscellaneous literary jobs to make quick cash and save the home he shares with Freddy. Meanwhile, Freddy is in Maine, forging a path of his own. Just as lovely as the first book, and once again somehow finding laugh out loud humor in Arthur's bad German, Arthur's journey through the heartland is a delight.

A delightful book! It was the perfect ray of sunshine in January. It wasn‘t too predictable, but it also was very feel-good. ☀️

🎧📖 Eva Mercy is a single mom and bestselling erotica writer who is feeling pressed from all sides. Shane Hall is a reclusive, enigmatic, award-winning novelist, who, to everyone‘s surprise, shows up in New York.
When Shane and Eva meet unexpectedly at a literary event, sparks fly, raising not only their buried traumas, but the eyebrows of the Black literati.

I just couldn't get into this one at all. While the writing is lovely, there are just so many uneeded sections that didn't really seem to the overall story and made it really long winded, wandering in a way, personally, could not keep me engaged. I would have loved more of Agnes, the independent, salty writer and her new young editor and maybe it's there but I was almost 40 % of the way through and wasn't compelled to keep going.

I‘m going to have to sit with this book for a while before I can decide how I feel about it, but on the whole, I think I really liked it. The writing is beautiful and I really enjoyed hanging out with these characters.

SamAnne Has been on my TBR since it came out. Thanks for the review! 1w
cdreincarnate @SamAnne Happy to help. If you‘re into audiobooks, I recommend this one. The narrator does a great job. 6d

This book was very meta. Young Paducah, KY, writer takes college writing courses while working a campus job & living with grandad. Published immigrant girlfriend is pursuing a career as a writing professor. So, LOTS of conversations about writing, literature, representation, & appropriation. Plenty of local color & depictions of cultural/political/class differences. It doesn‘t try to do too much, but what it does do, it does very well ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

DocBrown Paducah. I‘m wondering if that word serves as a dog whistle for you @britt_brooke. 1w
