A beautiful and thought-provoking love story, with equal doses of humor and wisdom. The main character is endearing Arthur Less - single, lonesome, and a struggling author who’s about to turn 50. He’s just received a wedding invitation from Freddy, his former lover, who became engaged just months after leaving Arthur...and Arthur is panic-stricken. Should he attend? He can’t possibly! So he flees the country...and what follows is a series of misadventures in far-flung places, while he comes to understand the true nature of love.
