A NovelBook - 2012
The new novel from the acclaimed author of "The Finkler Question." Novelist Guy Ableman is in thrall to his vivacious wife. The trouble is, he is no less in thrall to her alluring mother, Poppy, making it impossible for him to concentrate long enough to write. Not that anyone reads Guy anyway. Not that anyone is reading anything. Reading, Guy fears, is finished. His publisher, fearing the same, has committed suicide. His agent, like all agents, is in hiding. In flight from personal disappointment and universal despair, Guy wonders if it's time to take his love for Poppy to another level. Fiction might be dead, but desire isn't. By turns angry, elegiac, and rude, "Zoo Time" is a novel about love - love of women, love of literature, love of laughter. It shows a funny writer at his brilliant best.
