9780007447602: Q: A Love Story

In a gripping tale of time travel and true love that will appeal to fans of The Time Traveller’s Wife and The Adventures of Max Tivoli, a successful writer meets his future self, who advises him not to marry Q, the love of his life.

Would you give up the love of your life on the advice of a stranger?

A picturesque love story begins at the cinema when our hero – an unacclaimed writer, unorthodox professor and unmistakeable New Yorker – first meets Q, his one everlasting love. Over the following weeks, in the rowboats of Central Park, on the miniature golf courses of Lower Manhattan, under a pear tree in Q’s own inner-city Eden, their miraculous romance accelerates and blossoms.

Nothing, it seems – not even the hostilities of Q’s father or the impending destruction of Q’s garden – can disturb the lovers, or obstruct their advancing wedding. They are destined to be together.

Until one day a man claiming to be our hero’s future self tells him he must leave Q.

In Q, Evan Mandery has fashioned an epic love story on quantum foundations. The novel wears its philosophical and narrative sophistication lightly: with exuberant, direct and witty prose, Mandery brings an essayist’s poise to this fabulous romance. And, finally, Q has an ending that will melt even the darkest heart.

Review:

Praise for ‘Q’:

“…the payoff is big. A word to the tear prone: don’t attempt to read the ending in public.” Susannah Meadows, The New York Times

“Mandery is a worthy son of Vonnegut, Barthelme, and Barth.” Joseph Skibell, author of A Curable Romantic

‘A poignant, often hilarious, consideration of our universal curse of second guessing… It will take a reader with a very hard-heart not to be moved by "Q”.’ San Francisco Book Review

‘This novel reads like an early Woody Allen, when he was young and still funny…it’s a quirky tale, playing with philosophical notions and ‘what-if’ scenarios but at its heart it’s an epic romance, as the tear-jerking finale reveals’ Marie Claire Magazine

‘It’s The Time Traveller’s Wife with matzo ball soup jokes… A readable and poignant exploration of the roads not taken’ Financial Times

‘Great fun’ Metro

‘Evan Mandery writes with elegance and humour’ Times Literary Supplement
