From the incomparable David Rakoff, a poignant, beautiful, witty, and wise novel in verse whose scope spans the twentieth century

Through his books and his radio essays for NPR's This American Life, David Rakoff has built a deserved reputation as one of the finest and funniest essayists of our time. Written with humor, sympathy, and tenderness, this intricately woven novel proves him to be the master of an altogether different art form.


Editorial reviews (5 reviews)

If rhyming poetry makes you back off —
Try "Love, Dishonor..." by the late David Rakoff.

Although it's writ in the style of Seuss,

Its dazzling wit (never obtuse) —

Will keep you following its masterful plot.

A show. Watch the master dance, one last time.

The book’s prismatic structure allows sympathies to shift along with points of view, so a greedy lawyer turns out to be a loyal son, an unscrupulous lover’s sentimental side is revealed, and a materialistic narcissist develops into an eccentric seeker.
