About this item

Description



About the Book



In a series of intersecting narratives that explore variations of that ineffable feeling of love, Handler--who also writes as Lemony Snicket--crafts a moving and shifting story exploring the frustrating glory of this most troublesome of emotions.



Book Synopsis



Can Joe help it if he falls in love with people who don't make him happy? And what about Helena--she's in love, but somehow this isn't enough. Shouldn't it be? And if it isn't enough, does this mean she's not really in love? It certainly seems to be spoiling the love she's in. And let's say there's a volcano underneath the city--doesn't that make things more urgent? Does urgency mean that you should keep the person you're with, or search for the best possible person? And what if the best possible person loves someone else--like the Snow Queen, for instance?

This novel may not answer these questions, but nevertheless the author and publisher hope it will be of interest.

"The stories are clever, unsettling, confusing, and often brilliantly moving." -- Library Journal

"Brilliantly kooky and off-kilter." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer
