I made it about 25 pages into Mary Gordon's The Love of My Youth before I realized I had to make a choice. I could either continue the story of two former lovers unexpectedly reacquainted in Rome after decades of separation, or I could stop reading to avoid being driven into madness by the voluminous, deliberate sentence fragments. Despite what you may think, I closed the book.

I read a couple of good reviews of this book, so you may enjoy it, but I could not get past the style.
