The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

Author: Adelle Waldman Format: Paperback Release Date: 24/04/2014

Nathaniel Piven is a rising star in Brooklyn's literary scene. After several lean, striving years and an early life as a class-A nerd, he now (to his surprise) has a lucrative book deal, his pick of plum magazine assignments, and the attentions of many desirable women: Juliet, the hotshot business journalist; Elisa, Nate's gorgeous ex-girlfriend, now friend; Hannah, lively and fun and 'almost universally regarded as nice and smart, or smart and nice'. In this twenty-first-century literary enclave, wit and conversation are not at all dead. But is romance? In The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. Adelle Waldman plunges into the psyche of a sensitive, flawed, modern man - to reveal the view of the new world from his garret window, and the view of women from his overactive mind.

Eigentlich konnte es kaum besser laufen fur Nathaniel Piven. Er hat seinen ersten Buchvertrag in der Tasche, schreibt fur angesagte Magazine und tummelt sich in der hippen Kulturszene von Brooklyn. Auch sein Liebesleben hat Aufwind. Seine Exfreundin Elisa versucht, ihn wieder zu verfuhren, die attraktive Greer flirtet mit ihm, und als er die intelligente, selbstbewusste Hannah kennenlernt und eine Beziehung mit ihr eingeht, scheint das Gluck endgultig vor seiner Tur zu stehen. Das Problem ist nur, dass Nate es nicht hereinlasst. Je ernster es zwischen ihm und Hannah wird, desto mehr Zweifel plagen ihn. Ist er tatsachlich bereit, sich jetzt schon zu binden? Ist Hannah wirklich die richtige Frau? Ein qualender Zerfallsprozess beginnt ... Mit groer Beobachtungsgabe seziert Adelle Waldman die Psyche des modernen Mannes und sein Verhaltnis zu Frauen. Ihr Roman ist ein humorvolles, aber auch entlarvendes Portrat einer Generation, die alles hinterfragt, sich aber bei der ersten aller Fragen - wie passen Manner und Frauen uberhaupt zusammen? - immer wieder selbst im Wege steht.
