Read in March, 2012

This book is a gem. Noted by the NY Times as a book of the Year in 2000, Barnes does not disappoint. He is the master on relationship issues and about half way through this book I did some kind of mental note to ponder how am I doing compared to his characters. I wouldn't call it therapy but when one reads a Barnes story on love, sex and relationships, you get some uneasy feelings. I guess this is really art when this happens? On top of that, Barnes' language is so much fun to read and so vivid, such as when Gillian explains how often they have sex or the puns on Pluto the cat. Much better than therapy!
