Tenth Anniversary Edition
Sobre o livro
The Tenth Anniversary Edition, now with a new author's introduction and a foreword by J. Ryan Stadal
Weakness has always been a concern for William Miller: growing up vegetarian in a family of bodybuilders will do that to a person. But William is further weakened by the death of his mother, the arrival of a new step-mother, and his irrepressible crush on his new step-sister, Lulu. As Lulu faces down her own challenges, William watches his life shift into tumult and despair. Once Lulu departs for college, Will goes into the world to find himself discovering Western philosophy, a cruel dating world, enduring friendship, and, ultimately, his true calling. Emboldened by his turn as a late-night radio personality, Will rescues himself from the self-image of weakness hed long wished to escape. This debut novel explores the fundamental difference between where we come from and the endless possibilities of where we may go.
I first readAll About Lulu almost a decade ago, and you know what? It's still as audaciously brilliant as it was on first read, plumbing the depths of the cruel rhapsody of obsessive love, the pain of feeling different, and the deep pleasure of finally figuring out who you really are, and who you want to be. Devastatingly assured, wickedly funny, and sublimely moving,All About Lulu proves that Evison, so rightfully acclaimed, had that spark of genius right from the start.
