Andrew Sean Greer

Winner of the pulitzer prize for fiction in 2018. This is a beautifully written work. To begin with it was a bit heavy for me, he loves a simile. The character being a gay, single male approaching 50 I thought initially I could not relate to. But I was endearerd to both his writing sytle and his characters. Very enjoyable book and great insight into love and perspective. Was also a lovely travel book both geographically as Andrew Less travels to literary events across the world, but also back into his past.
