Product Details


Praise for Love and Obstacles
A New York Times Notable Book

“You may feel nearly giddy with pleasure at how beautifully written, funny, and entertaining [these stories] are, and at the depths of tenderness and seriousness swirling beneath their wry, deceptively offhand surface.” — Francine Prose, O, the Oprah Magazine

“Marvelous and original… Hemon writes with a peculiar grace, somehow both reckless and unflinching, both troublingly absurd and absolutely precise.” — The Boston Globe

“The stories are scarred elegies, quickened with poetry, anger, violence, wistful love, and, throughout, Hemon’s extraordinary lyric freedom.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“Reviewers find it difficult to resist comparing Aleksandar Hemon to Nabokov, since both men [have a] preternatural facility in their second, acquired language.” — The Washington Post
