Some brief overview of this book

1985. After the death of her beloved twin brother, Felix, and the breakup with her longtime lover, Nathan, Greta Wells embarks on a radical psychiatric treatment to alleviate her suffocating depression. But the treatment has unexpected effects, and Greta finds herself transported to the lives she might have had if shed been born in different eras.

During the course of her treatment, Greta cycles between her own time and alternate lives in 1918, where she is a bohemian adulteress, and 19est Coast, living for a while in Seattle before finally settling in San Francisco. His work began to appear in literary magazines, and in 2000 he released How It Was for Me, an anthology of short stories The New York Times Book Review called an impressive first collection. One year later, his debut novel The Path of Minor Planets was published to much acclaim. However, it was his second novel, 2004s The Confessions of Max Tivoli, that proved to be Greers big breakthrough. The title character of this bittersweet love story is a freak of nature: Born a baby with the appearance of a 70-year-old man, Max proceeds to live his entire life in reverse, ending up a wise old man trapped in the body of a helpless child. In a glowing New Yorker review, literary legend John Updike proclaimed the novel ...enchanting, in the perfumed, dandified style of disenchantment brought to grandeur by Proust and Nabokov. It was named a year-end best book by The San Francisco Chronicle, The Chicago Tribune, and the Miami Herald. His most current work is The Story of a Marriage. In addition to his novels, Greer continues to publish short fiction, reviews, and criticism. His work has appeared in Esquire, Paris Review, The New Yorker, and The New York Times.

Good To Know

In our interview, Greer shared some fun and fascinating facts about himself with us: Im an identical twin. His name is Michael Greer and hes also a fiction writer, and though our styles are very different, we love reading each others work. We used to live a block apart in San Francisco, but he went to grad school in New York and now lives in Brooklyn, so if you think youve seen me on the streets of New York, its probably not me, but say hi anyway. Were both very used to being greeted by strangers who think were someone else. Some early jobs I had while trying to survive as a writer: reservationist at a fancy restaurant, chauffeur for a woman who couldnt drive because of a double mastectomy, sound and lighting Technician for experimental theater in New York, acting extra on Saturday Night Live, game tester for Nintendo, attendant to a woman recovering from plastic surgery, and so on. Although every writer must have a day job, I vowed at least to make mine interesting so Id have something to write about. One of my weirdest jobs — touring New England private schools with a Vietnamese boy and pretending to be his English tutor — made it into the first story of my collection, How It Was for Me. I like dogs and burritos. I dislike direct sunlight and cantaloupes.
