“I had fled a dreadful Easter event and informed my friends they could meet me in a bar, then snagged a book in a local bookstore. What I found was In Love by Alfred Hayes: one of those man-tells-you-a-story-in-a-bar novels (love them), recounting an old lover and the effect of her decisions on their love affair, seeped in ’40s noir New York. You get a bastard child of Chandler and Colette, world-weary, lovesick and beautiful. To be read with an Old-Fashioned at hand.”

Andrew Sean Greer, author of The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells, now out in paperback
