Praise for A Working Theory of Love…
"A brainy, bright, laughter-through-tears, can't-stop-[listening]-until-it's-over kind of novel. Fatherless daughters, mother-smothered sons, appealing ex-wives, mouthy high school drop-outs---damn, this book's got something for everyone!" ---Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story
