Title: Twenty-one Truths About Love

From the beloved author of Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend comes a wonderful new novel about a struggling man, written entirely in lists.


Downloaded from Netgalley — free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

I was going to quit this because it was so strange. But I kept reading it and the story unfolds nicely within the notes and the way they’re formatted.

The notes feel like his way of dealing with the anxiety of telling his wife something important. They’re notes about how much he loves his wife, his anxiety for being her husband — and also, his bookstore isn’t doing too well.
