Summary, etc.:
For Arthur Less, life is going surprisingly well: he is a moderately accomplished novelist in a steady relationship with his partner, Freddy Pelu. But nothing lasts: the death of an old lover and a sudden financial crisis has Less running away from his problems yet again as he accepts a series of literary gigs that send him on a zigzagging adventure across the US.

    In Greer's eagerly awaited follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize-winning Less (2017), Arthur Less is now a "Minor American Novelist" with a mustache that no one notices and is happily living with his younger partner, Freddy Pelu, in San Francisco. However, with the death of an old lover, Less suddenly owes a monumental amount of rent, so he determinedly sets off on a series of paid literary gigs to ensure that they can keep their home. While in Less Arthur traveled around the world, this is a road novel mapped across the entire U.S. as he lives in a clapped-out but comfortable camper van he calls Rosina. As he bumbles from farce to farce across the nation, he learns about himself and America. The star is the narrator, Freddy, whose wry, loving perspective means Less' quirky antics are always grounded in some seemingly fathomable logic. Full of riotously funny scenes—particularly around Less' overconfidence in his German-speaking abilities—this is a worthy follow-up to the magnificent and much-lauded Less, and it is a joy to once again accompany Arthur on his travels.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Less lovers are waiting!
