This is a terrifically smart and original book that is both important and a pleasure to read because it is so psychologically astute and beautifully written. It is about an Armenian-American writer who grew up being told that Turkey was the enemy As ...more

“Dating is probably the most fraught human interaction there is. You're sizing people up to see if they're worth your time and attention, and they're doing the same to you. It's meritocracy applied to personal life, but there's no accountability. We submit ourselves to these intimate inspections and simultaneously inflict them on others and try to keep our psyches intact - to keep from becoming cold and callous - and we hope that at the end of it we wind up happier than our grandparents, who didn't spend this vast period of their lives, these prime years, so thoroughly alone, coldly and explicitly anatomized again and again.”
Adelle Waldman, The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

“I feel like you want to think what you're feeling is really deep, like some seriously profound existential shit. But to me, it looks like the most tired, the most average thing in the world, the guy who is all interested in a woman until the very moment when it dawns on him that he has her. Wanting only what you can't have. The affliction of shallow morons everywhere.”
Adelle Waldman, The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

“Each time Nate saw her, Elisa’s beauty struck him anew, as if in the interval the memory of what she actually looked like had been distorted by the tortured emotions she elicited since they’d broken up: in his mind, she took on the dimensions of an abject creature. What a shock when she opened the door, bursting with vibrant, almost aggressive good health. The power of her beauty, Nate had once decided, came from its ability to constantly reconfigure itself. When he thought he’d accounted for it, filed it away as a dead fact—pretty girl—she turned her head or bit her lip, and like a children’s toy you shake to reset, her prettiness changed shape, its coordinates altered: now it flashed from the elegant contours of her sloping brow and flaring cheekbone, now from her shyly smiling lips.”
Adelle Waldman, The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

“Human experience is usually paradoxical, if that means incongruous with the phrases of current talk or even current philosophy.”
George Eliot

“The difficult task of knowing another soul is not for young gentleman whose consciousness is chiefly made up of their own wishes.”
George Eliot
