Product description

Review

"Less is the funniest, smartest and most humane novel I've read since Tom Rachman's 2010 debut, The Imperfectionists....Greer writes sentences of arresting lyricism and beauty. His metaphors come at you like fireflies....Like Arthur, Andrew Sean Greer's Less is excellent company. It's no less than bedazzling, bewitching and be-wonderful."
New York Times Book Review


"Greer is an exceptionally lovely writer, capable of mingling humor with sharp poignancy.... Brilliantly funny.... Greer's narration, so elegantly laced with wit, cradles the story of a man who loses everything: his lover, his suitcase, his beard, his dignity."Ron Charles, Washington Post

"Greer's novel is philosophical, poignant, funny and wise, filled with unexpected turns....Although Greer is gifted and subtle in comic moments, he's just as adept at ruminating on the deeper stuff. His protagonist grapples with aging, loneliness, creativity, grief, self-pity and more."―San Francisco Chronicle


"I recommend it with my whole heart."
Ann Patchett


"A piquantly funny fifth novel."
Entertainment Weekly


"Greer, the author of wonderful, heartfelt novels including The Confessions of Max Tivoli, The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells and The Story of a Marriage, shows he has another powerful weapon in his arsenal: comedy. And who doesn't need a laugh right about now?"―Miami Herald


"Greer elevates Less' picaresque journey into a wise and witty novel. This is no Eat, Pray Love story of touristic uplift, but rather a grand travelogue of foibles, humiliations and self-deprecation, ending in joy, and a dollop of self-knowledge."―National Book Review


"Dressed in his trademark blue suit, Less adorably butchers the German language, nearly falls in love in Paris, celebrates his birthday in the desert and, somewhere along the way, discovers something new and fragile about the passing of time, about the coming and going of love, and what it means to be the fool of your own narrative. It's nothing less than wonderful."―Book Page


"Greer's evocations of the places Arthur visits offer zesty travelogue pleasures"―Seattle Times


"Less is perhaps Greer's finest yet.... A comic yet moving picture of an American abroad.... Less is a wondrous achievement, deserving an even larger audience than Greer's bestselling The Confessions of Max Tivoli."

From the Back Cover

'Bedazzling, bewitching and be-wonderful' New York Times Book Review
'A fast and rocketing read . . . a wonderful, wonderful book!' Karen Joy Fowler

WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T RUN AWAY FROM YOUR PROBLEMS?
Arthur Less is a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the post: it is from an ex-boyfriend of nine years who is engaged to someone else. Arthur can't say yes - it would be too awkward; he can't say no - it would look like defeat. So, he begins to accept the invitations on his desk to half-baked literary events around the world.
From France to India, Germany to Japan, Arthur almost falls in love, almost falls to his death, and puts miles between him and the plight he refuses to face. Less is a novel about mishaps, misunderstandings and the depths of the human heart.

'Hilarious, and wise, and abundantly funny' Adam Haslett

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but the book came damaged.
By Aayushi Vasava on 25 July 2018
Waited a lot for this book since it's release in June. The book was promising. It was delivered earlier than the expected delivery. But the book was a bit damaged, had a crease on the cover and was folded. Also, payed 500 bucks, a bookmark along would have been good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes for good one time read
By the_book_smugglers on 24 October 2019
The protagonist in the book Arthur less is gay and life that happens around him. He recieves an invitation to ex's - Freddy's wedding. He can't say no not yes for obvious reasons. He tries to escape from the situation by accepting other offers to events and lectures and resorts to travelling. The story revolves just around him and his life. This first book that i have read that has a gay character in the center and story revolving around him
