Award-winning novelist ANDREW SEAN GREER reads “Less” about love at the age of fifty

Join Harvard Book Store as they welcome award-winning novelist ANDREW SEAN GREER for a discussion of his latest work, Less.

What would possibly go wrong? Arthur Less will almost fall in love in Paris, almost fall to his death in Berlin, barely escape to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan sandstorm, accidentally book himself as the (only) writer-in-residence at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and encounter, on a desert island in the Arabian Sea, the last person on Earth he wants to face. Somewhere in there: he will turn fifty. Through it all, there is his first love. And there is his last.  Because, despite all these mishaps, missteps, misunderstandings and mistakes, Less is, above all, a love story.

This book will be for sale at the event for 20% off.  There will also be a signing after the event.

No tickets required for entry.
