Synopsis

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2018.

Less is a satirical comedy novel by American author Andrew Sean Greer first published in 2017. It follows writer Arthur Less while he travels the world on a literary tour to numb his loss of the man he loves.

Arthur Less is a struggling writer on the brink of turning 50. As if life isn't bad enough, Arthur receives an invitation to his former and younger lover's upcoming wedding.

In a bid to avoid his ex's wedding, Less accepts every invitation he has received to upcoming literary events around the world. Before he knows it, Arthur has a world tour itinerary, from Mexico to Italy, Germany to France, Morocco to India, and finally Japan.

This soul searching story is hilarious, wise, and refreshingly honest about love, sex, friendship and growing old.

No matter how far we run, can we really run from our problems, love, or ourselves?

The book covers themes such as romantic love, relationships, aging, and travel.
