A missing laptop, a petulant critic, a sojourn in communal living--Eleanor, or, The Rejection of the Progress of Love is a bracingly intelligent examination of grief, autonomy, aging, desire, information overload, and the condition of being a thinking and feeling inhabitant of an often unthinkable, numbing world. Anna Moschovakis's debut novel bristles with honesty, humor, and the hungers that propel us to revise and again revise our lives.
