Rate this:
"Philosophically exhaustive yet profoundly human, this book sets itself the task of asking the big questions--What am I? What was I? What will I be?--in a style that evokes Lispector and Camus but with the self-referential and weary globalism of the current milieu. A consummately accomplished novel. A worthy treatise on the now." --Kirkus, starred review
A novel about a woman writing a novel about a woman who writes--Eleanor, or, The Rejection of the Progress of Love is a sexy, earthy, bracingly intelligent examination of the vicissitudes of grief, ambition, aging, information overload, compassion fatigue, and a data-centric understanding of self; the relative merits of giving up or giving in.
