Andrew Sean Greer is the bestselling author of five works of fiction, including The Confessions of Max Tivoli, which was named a best book of 2004 by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Chicago Tribune. He is the recipient of the Northern California Book Award, the California Book Award, the New York Public Library Young Lions Award, the O Henry award for short fiction and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Public Library. A struggling novelist travels the world to avoid an awkward wedding in Less: A Novel (Lee Boudreaux Books), his hilarious Pulitzer Prize-winning novel full of “arresting lyricism and beauty,” according to The New York Times Book Review. Who says you can’t run away from your problems? You are a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A scintillating satire of the American abroad, a rumination on time and the human heart, a bittersweet romance of chances lost, by an author The New York Times has hailed as “inspired, lyrical,” “elegiac,” “ingenious,” as well as “too sappy by half,” Less shows a writer at the peak of his talents raising the curtain on our shared human comedy.
