Description: Bold, touching, and funny-a debut novel by a brilliant young woman about the coming-of-age of a brilliant young literary man"He was not the kind of guy who disappeared after sleeping with a woman-and certainly not after the condom broke. On the contrary: Nathaniel Piven was a product of a postfeminist 1980s childhood and politically correct, 1990s college education. He had learned all about male privilege. Moreover, he was in possession of a functional and frankly rather clamorous conscience." - From The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.Nate Piven is a rising star in Brooklyn's literary scene. After several lean and striving years, he has his pick of both magazine assignments and women: Juliet, the hotshot business reporter; Elisa, his gorgeous ex-girlfriend, now friend; and Hannah, "almost universally regarded as nice and smart, or smart and nice," who is lively fun and holds her own in conversation with his friends.In this 21st-century literary world, wit and conversation are not at all dead. Is romance? Novelist Adelle Waldman plunges into the psyche of a modern man-who thinks of himself as beyond superficial judgment, yet constantly struggles with his own status anxiety, who is drawn to women, yet has a habit of letting them down. With tough-minded intelligence and wry good humor The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. is an absorbing tale of one young man's search for happiness-and an inside look at how he really thinks about women, sex and love."This former young-literary-man-in-Brooklyn found himself cringing in recognition." - William Deresiewicz, author of A Jane Austen Education "I can't remember the last novel this good about being young and smart and looking for love in the big city. A big-hearted, ruthlessly intelligent, and ridiculously well-written novel." - Charles Bock, author of the best-selling novel Beautiful Children ". . .the best debut I've encountered in years, the best novel about New York, and the best novel about contemporary manhood and the crazy state of gender roles and just 'contemporary' life." - Joanna Smith Rakoff, author of A Fortunate Age
