I'm not going to say that this isn't a really well-crafted book, but Holy Jesus it's depressing. Three Bedrooms is the story of two middle-aged drunks falling in love in the West Village in the 1940s. The psychology of the male protagonist is spot-on - which makes it really, really depressing.

This book should be read with a fifth of scotch and only after you've been dumped, when you're still going through the shock of withdrawal. That way the ending will seem happy.
