9780140103281: Anagrams: A Novel (Contemporary American Fiction)

Gerard sits, fully clothed, in his empty bathtub and pines for Benna. Neighbors in the same apartment building, they share a wall and Gerard listens for the sound of her toilet flushing. Gerard loves Benna. And then Benna loves Gerard. She listens to him play piano, she teaches poetry and sings at nightclubs.
As their relationships ebbs and flows, through reality and imagination, Lorrie Moore paints a captivating, innovative portrait of men and women in love and not in love. The first novel from a master of contemporary American fiction, "Anagrams "is a revelatory tale of love gained and lost.

Review:

" An extraordinary, often hilarious novel." -- "The New York Times Book Review" " From the very start, Lorrie Moore's generous gifts as a writer have been clear: A wry, distinctive voice, a gift for telling detail." -- "The New York Times" " "Anagrams "has all the wit and inveigling playfulness of "Self-Help," plus an organic sophistication astounding in a first novel." -- "The Philadelphia Inquirer" " A rare novel. . . . Its surface sparkles with wit and humor, but underneath there's a keen intelligence at work, a seriousness of purpose that's deeply touching. Read "Anagrams," It will bowl you over." -- "The Plain Dealer"
