“I couldn’t love LESS more.”- – Ron Charles, Washington Post

“Andrew Sean Greer’s Less is great organization. It’s no not as much as astonishing, charming and be-wonderful.”Christopher Buckley, New York Times Book Review

Who says you can’t flee from your problems? You are a fizzled writer going to turn fifty. A wedding welcome touches base via the post office: your sweetheart of the previous nine years is locked in to another person. You can’t state yes- – it would be excessively unbalanced – and you can’t state no- – it would look like annihilation. Around your work area are a progression of solicitations to insane abstract occasions far and wide.

QUESTION: How would you orchestrate to skip town?

ANSWER: You acknowledge them all.

What would conceivably turn out badly? Arthur Less will nearly begin to look all starry eyed at in Paris, nearly tumble to his demise in Berlin, scarcely get away to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan dust storm, unintentionally book himself as the (main) author in-home at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and experience, on a betray island in the Arabian Sea, the keep going individual on Earth he needs to confront. Some place in there: he will turn fifty. Through everything, there is his first love. What’s more, there is his last.

Since, notwithstanding every one of these disasters, stumbles, mistaken assumptions and missteps, Less is, most importantly, a romantic tale.

A glittering parody of the American abroad, a rumination on time and the human heart, a self-contradicting sentiment of chances lost, by a writer The New York Times has hailed as “enlivened, melodious,” “elegiac,” “keen,” and additionally “excessively sappy considerably,” Less shows an author at the pinnacle of his abilities raising the window ornament on our mutual human comedy.
