Synopses & Reviews
The story of a neurotic, young, largely unemployed television writer and her tortured love affair with a narcissist, Him Her Him Again The End of Him is smart, lively, original, and rich with insight into romantic obsession, an endlessly entertaining reimagining of the comedy of manners.
A neurotic Cambridge graduate struggles to cover up her dysfunctional relationship with a narcissistic young man and engages in increasingly absurd lies and acts of self-deception.
Former Saturday Night Live writer Patricia Marx brings her clever, deadpan humor to this addictively readable novel about one woman's comic obsession with her first boyfriend. A neurotic young graduate student looking for distraction from her doomed thesis is inexplicably swept off her feet by a narcissistic philosophy professor. The obsession continues even after he has dumped her for someone even needier and she has given up on school and become a television writer. Meeting again in New York, they begin an adulterous affair that, of course, can only end in some kind of crisis. Smart, lively, and original, Him Her Him Again The End of Him is an endlessly entertaining reimagining of the comedy of manners.
