About Q: A Novel

• Paperback: 368 pages
Publisher: Harper Paperbacks (August 23, 2011)

“You must not marry Q.” This is the fateful and heartbreaking message delivered to the protagonist by someone who knows him very, very well, and it comes deep into a sweet courtship all around New York City. Yet Q is the love of his life and they are engaged to be wed. But for clear and painful reasons, he knows that for her sake, he can’t go through with it. And so his journey begins, and he must find a way to spare Q any pain and embark on any new path possible to happiness—or any semblance thereof. He loses himself in his writing and in research of historical figures, notably Freud and his own unhappiness, and he is also given regular updates on how to live life by the same well-meaning but disturbing friend.

Evan Mandery takes the traditional love story and turns it on its head, in the sweetest and most thoughtful way, with humor and angst in equal measure, and gives a totally surprising ending that will melt the darkest heart.
