“Andrew Sean Greer’s Pulitzer-winning (2018) comic novel about a middle-aged gay man on a round-the-world trip is light in tone but never slight in impact,” says our own Glen Weldon. “The narrator observes the absent-minded Arthur Less’ sexual and logistical perambulations with an artisanal blend of exasperation and affection, only occasionally granting us access to the wider, deeper story Less is running away from. As funny as it is, it’s achingly poignant about what’s been lost — an entire generation of gay men who aren’t around to model what aging can look like. All that, plus a final image that leaves you gasping — and grinning.”
Morning Book Club will meet to discuss “Less” by Andrew Sean Greer at 9:00 am on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, at Norway Memorial Library or by Zoom for those who wish to attend remotely.
