Docket Page 47 – Less by Andrew Sean Greer

CHARGE (What was the author trying to say?): To show how to survive a romantic breakup.

FACTS: Breaking up with his latest lover, writer Arthur Less cobbles together a world tour financed by “festivals, prize committees, universities, residency programs, and media conglomerates.” The book made me feel dirty. Every chapter was filled with one night stands and casual hookups. I read this for a book club – otherwise I would not have continued after the first few pages. I am incredulous this won the Pulitzer Prize. What a piece of trash!

VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Not guilty
