3. Less
Chances are, you’ve been faced with coming to terms with your 50th birthday. So has the protagonist in Andrew Sent Greer’s novel, Less. As a floundering writer, contemplating the wedding invitation of his former boyfriend to someone new, Less decides to skip town by accepting every half-baked literary event he’s been invited to. What follows is an around-the-world odyssey that leads to mishaps, missteps, misunderstandings, and mistakes. We’ve all been there, right?
