Andrew Sean Greer, author of LESS IS LOST - an in-person ticketed event

About this event

Boswell Book Company presents an event with Andrew Sean Greer for Less is Lost, the follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize winning Less. In conversation with Liam Callanan. Cosponsored by Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library.

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. We cannot, however, escape ourselves - even across deserts, bayous, and coastlines. From his estranged father and strained relationship with Freddy, to the reckoning he experiences in confronting his privilege, Arthur Less must eventually face his personal demons.

From David Sedaris, author of Happy-Go-Lucky: "Does Andrew Greer think of himself as a comic novelist? Does a giraffe think of itself as a giraffe? Probably it doesn't matter. This book, though, is wildly, painfully, funny. It sometimes hurts to read it."

Andrew Sean Greer is the Pulitzer Prize winning author of six works of fiction, including the bestsellers The Confessions of Max Tivoli and Less. Greer has taught at a number of universities, including the Iowa Writers Workshop, been a TODAY show pick, a New York Public Library Cullman Center Fellow, a judge for the National Book Award, and a winner of the California Book Award and the New York Public Library Young Lions Award. He is the recipient of a NEA grant, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

$5 from each ticket will be donated to the Milwaukee Public Library Foundation. Tickets include a copy of the book. You can opt for either early pick up after the July 20th release date, or pick up at the event.
