Andrew Sean Greer offers more on “Less is Lost”

Andrew Sean Greer catapulted onto the literary scene with his 2017 novel Less, a poignant yet hilarious book that won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature the following year. This novel explores the trials and tribulations of a failing, queer novelist who gazes into the barrel of middle age. It’s a love story about identity and the passage of time, told in crisp, humorous prose that brought its protagonist Arthur Less and Greer to literary fame to life.

Now Greer is back with the sequel, Less is wasted, which follows Less on a road trip across the country. This time he is a moderately accomplished novelist in a stable relationship. But, as they say, happiness written in white on the page, and the death of an old lover and a shocking financial crisis force Less to heal himself while hitting the road – exploring what it means to be a gay man in America during the process .

Greer will stop by the Canyon Theater at the Boulder Public Library on September 22 to discuss and sign his new book, just two days after it was published by Little Brown. The book will be 20% off during the event. He will also be joined in conversation with Boulder Book Store’s Arsen Kashkashian and KGNU’s Maeve Conran, in a live recording from the Boulder Book Store and KGNU Radio Book Club.

5:30 p.m. Thursday, September 22, Canyon Theater at the Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder. Tickets: $10.
