The Book of Love, by Lynn Weingarten
The result is an even stranger novel that the first one. This was a hard book for me to track, first off because the plot is so twisted and the book keeps changing directions. And secondly, because the characters simply are not memorable. I was glad to see a moral compass introduced towards to end of the story, because the mindless hedonism that predominates this story is really a turn off. But I think the message that emotional authenticity is more powerful than any magic could have been made a bit more forcefully in the end.
