THE “NO STRINGS ATTACHED BOOK CLUB”
SPONSORED BY THE SOCIAL COMMITTEE OF THE PTOS
 

“Less”
by
Andrew Sean Greer
(Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction)
“Greer has written about gay characters before, but “Less” is his first novel to focus on an openly gay writer. Among other things, this hapless antihero gives him a chance to mock himself and the expectations imposed on minority authors. Trapped at a party, for instance, a competing novelist sidles up to Less and tells him, “It’s not that you’re a bad writer, it’s that you’re a bad gay.” Before Less can think of any response to this toxic appraisal, his friend continues: “It is our duty to show something beautiful from our world. The gay world. But in your books, you make the characters suffer without reward.” That may be true of Less’s novels, but it’s not true of this one, which eventually rewards Less’s fragile optimism in the most charming way.” (Ron Charles, Washington Post (7/13/17))
