Book Description

2 Jan 2007
With the same élan and wit that inform her internationally acclaimed and award-winning plays, Yasmina Reza’s second novel, Adam Haberberg, revels in the tragicomedy of one man’s midlife crisis.

While slumped on a park bench in Paris, a man is suddenly hailed by an old female classmate whom he has not seen since high school. The poor guy is, of course, a writer. Morose, panicked about his health, preoccupied with his marriage miseries and the fiasco of his recent book launch, he finds himself stranded in the desert of male middle age. And now there’s the strange business of this woman, who may or may not still be in love with him. Somehow he finds himself riding in her Jeep, riding to her place, not for any of the sensational reasons you might imagine, but because he sort of got stuck in a conversation without any chance of escape. Now he has to find his way out—and home.

A bitingly funny, lethally wise portrait of a hapless nonhero’s big adventure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Steer Clear of this train wreck.. 17 Feb 2008
By M. C. Horn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This could be possibly the most tiresome, tritely drawn up drivel I have yet to read.. Her understanding of men is so foreign, so incomplete, so vacuous.. There were no comical elements to be found.. How come the rating system can't display negative stars... I want my time refunded I spent on this book!

2.0 out of 5 stars strange disjointed story 10 July 2007
By weekly reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The writing style is hard to follow at first but I was able to get through the book. The story line jumped around and it was hard to tell when Adam was talking out loud and when he was thinking. this short book is about a few hours of the day in the miserable life of Adam with no start or finish to the story. will not be passing this one along to anyone with my blessing.
