Less (Winner of the Pulitzer Prize)
“What would you do if you found yourself at the precipice of your 50th birthday with nothing to say for yourself other than your long term relationship with a famous author, now former relationship? Maybe Arthur Less can fall back on his own writing, which has been poorly received, or maybe he can fall back into the arms of his lover, who has just sent him an invitation to his wedding to another man. But Less decides to do something different, that is to say Yes to invitations which will put him on his greatest adventure to Paris, Berlin, Morocco, the Sahara, India and more. But this story is not about a man travelling to exotic locations but rather a story about a man discovering himself after years of living as someone else. It could be said that this story has been told before, but Greer tells it so well that it feels new again. And, though Less' friends berate him for telling a story no one should care about (a 50 year old white, gay man discovering himself), the details of Less' struggles are relevant and beautiful.”Jessica, BookBar
