At times wistful, at times wildly humorous account of Arthur Less's travels as he tries to heal a broken heart and at the same time resurrect his literary career. Mildly satirical portraits of successful creative types, and a very engaging travelogue. Enjoyable reading (I laughed out loud a few times), though I can't quite rave about it the way the Pulitzer committee did. Heartfelt, but not particularly deep.

Beautiful book (including cover illustration and nifty line drawing at each chapter title)! I tried to decipher who the heck narrator is (- one of Less’s former crush, final spouse?), until “Less At Last”...what a bummer. All the luck upon the Ar/uthur - all things Less! I turned my envy about fragile sentiment to jealous over saccharine romance, wish to sprinkle bitterness to be more palatable.
