Forever Is the Worst Long Time
- A Novel
- By: Camille Pagán
- Narrated by: Timothy Andrés Pabon
- Length: 7 hrs and 40 mins
When struggling novelist James Hernandez meets poet Louisa "Lou" Bell, he's sure he's just found the love of his life. There's just one problem: she's engaged to his oldest friend, Rob. So James toasts their union and swallows his desire. As the years pass, James's dreams always seem just out of reach - he can't finish that novel, can't mend his relationship with his father, can't fully commit to a romantic relationship. He just can't move on.

Wonder where Ms. Pagan got the idea for this novel. It's not what usually appeals to me since laughter truly is the best medicine. Having just read her book, Life and Other Near-Death Experiences, I wasn't expecting to sob myself silly (my husband's opinion). Yet it must be said that this book is excellent because Pagan could make me smile, hope, & sob. Now I can't wait to afford her book, The Art Of Forgetting--just to get a few pointers.
