The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. - Adelle Waldman Well that sure was the least romantic book about love that I've ever read.

This pretty much was a Woody Allen movie in book form. I suppose the author intended to make her protagonist loathsome and the women characters who were supposed to be mold-breaking not so mold-breaking. There were some scenes and interactions that I could genuinely identify with and the writing is decent. But intellectualizing about things like racialism (?), class and gentrification made it seem like everyone related to writing and publishing are entitled self-absorbed pricks who live in a bubble.
