In the follow-up to the 'bedazzling; bewitching; and be-wonderful' (NYTBR) bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning Less; the awkward and lovable Arthur Less returns in an unforgettable road trip across America. Go get lost somewhere; it always does you good. For Arthur Less; life is going surprisingly well: he is a moderately accomplished novelist in a steady relationship with his partner; Freddy Pelu. But nothing lasts: the death of an old lover and a sudden financial crisis has Less running away from his problems yet again as he accepts a series of literary gigs that send him on a zigzagging adventure across the US. Less roves across the 'Mild Mild West'; through the South and to his mid-Atlantic birthplace; with an ever-changing posse of writerly characters and his trusty duo - a human-like black pug; Dolly; and a rusty camper van nicknamed Rosina. He grows a handlebar mustache; ditches his signature gray suit; and disguises himself in the bolero-and-cowboy-hat costume of a true 'Unitedstatesian'... with varying levels of success; as he continues to be mistaken for either a Dutchman; the wrong writer; or; worst of all; a 'bad gay'. We cannot; however; escape ourselves - even across deserts; bayous; and coastlines. From his estranged father and strained relationship with Freddy; to the reckoning he experiences in confronting his privilege; Arthur Less must eventually face his personal demons. With all of the irrepressible wit and musicality that made Less a bestselling; Pulitzer Prize-winning; must-read breakout book; Less Is Lost is a profound and joyous novel about the enigma of life in America; the riddle of love; and the stories we tell along the way.
