Description
Set in a rural New Jersey boardinghouse during the Great Depression, this novel by the author of Lunar Follies and The Abyss of Human Illusion depicts the pleasures and torments of romance, as experienced by four people over the course of 36 hours: a 10-year-old boy in search of a dad; the boy's attractive, divorced mother; his dignified but embittered grandfather; and a rakish salesman. Each character tells the story in his or her own voice—stories that Gilbert Sorrentino further enriches with fantasies, letters, a narrative question-and-answer, and fragments of dialogue and memory.

"Lively with narrative ingenuity—yet right to the heart of ordinary life."—Philip Roth
