About this item
Casting himself asboth subject and observer, Frisch reflects on his marriages, children, friendships,and careers; a holiday weekend in Long Island is a trigger to recount andquestion events and aspects of his own life, along with creeping fears ofmortality. He paints a bittersweet portrait that is sometimes painful andsometimes humorous, but always affecting. Emotionally raw and formally innovative, Frisch’s novel collapses thedistinction between art and life, but leaves the reader with a richerunderstanding of both.
