[Contains explicit content] This week, Faith sits down with author André Aciman to discuss his new novel Enigma Variations, what it means to truly desire someone, and the difference between remorse and regret. Plus, Frank Brinkley of Literary Review magazine talks about his responsibilities as administrator of the Bad Sex in Fiction Award, and shares some cringeworthy excerpts from past winners.
What made the experience of listening to Ep. 11: André Aciman (Authorized: Love and Romance) the most enjoyable?
Andre Aciman is probably one of the most amazing writers hands down, but he is also an amazing thinker. Love is action, but it is also our thinking...our interpretation of our stories.
What other book might you compare Ep. 11: André Aciman (Authorized: Love and Romance) to and why?
All of the books by Aciman...but, everytime I hear him talk or read what he's written, I think of Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and After Sunrise.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I'm pretty sure I'm in love with anything Andre Aciman touches...pretty sure I feel the same way about love and lust and relationships, but I could never put it into words in the same beautiful way that he does. He is SO DANGED GOOD!
