Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2018. 

Who says you can't run away from your problems?

Arthur Less is a failed novelist about to turn 50. A wedding invitation arrives in the post: it is from an ex-boyfriend of nine years who is engaged to someone else. Arthur can't say yes - it would be too awkward; he can't say no - it would look like defeat. So, he begins to accept the invitations on his desk to half-baked literary events around the world. 

From France to India, Germany to Japan, Arthur almost falls in love, almost falls to his death, and puts miles between him and the plight he refuses to face. Less is a novel about mishaps, misunderstandings and the depths of the human heart.

'Less' is a great read and listen

I loved both the book and the audio book. It is a warm human story about recognisable people. But my husband found it dull - It's doesn't have enough action so I wouldn't recommend it for lovers of action.

What a treat.

Listening to the story of Arthur Less was like meeting an old and beloved friend. What a lovable, heartwarming (and at times -wrenching) story brought to life by an excellent reader. I loved every second of it.
