Staff Pick

Everyone has the relationship they look back on and wonder what the hell they were thinking dating and/or staying with this person for so long. This memoir perfectly captures the feelings that come years after that relationship has ended. You knew the relationship was doomed but you went along with it anyway, and now you can't help but shake your head and laugh.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You are an ace starfighter pilot in the Galactic Space Force. Shot down over a mysterious planet, you have been taken captive by a race of giant, superintelligent ants. However, the story is actually about your relationship with a young woman named Anne, and your struggles to cope with her alcoholism. Only with the right choices will you be able to save your relationship and discover the secret of the Ant-Warriors!

Review:

"Love Is Not Constantly is a small masterpiece of twentysomething romantic trauma — a book with real clarity of vision that reads, at times, like a horror story." Slate.com

Review:

"Love's tremendous appeal is in the tension between its clear-eyed, serious account of a difficult relationship, and its fun, nostalgic Choose Your Own Adventure aesthetic. But the book design serves a function beyond cutesiness: It is an implicit reminder that as hopeless and stuck as the narrator feels in his relationship, it's always up to him to choose whether to stay or to go. Giant mutant ants or no, it's a powerful, affecting device." Portland Mercury

If you grew up in the 80's, you probably encountered the Choose Your Own Adventure series. When I saw the cover and layout of this book, I thought it would be an adult version, but really it's a slim, slight, rather pedestrian story of an anonymous guy and his tumultuous relationship with his alcoholic, destructive girlfriend. The format gives it some novelty, but this is a familiar story. Sarah Miller's kitschy illustrations are cool though.
