Arthur Less has always lived in the shadow cast by his relationship with a brilliant poet. His measure as a writer has always been eclipsed by the stature of his lover. Less decides to accept invitations to a series of minor literary events around the world, because they provide a convenient excuse to avoid attending the wedding of another lover. Intermingling with people from other cultures, he regains a sense of his own value both as an individual and an artist. A dryly funny and immersive novel with a protagonist whose self-doubts will be very familiar to all of us. — Alden Graves
