The Week You Weren't Here
ISBN: 9781480425811. OCLC Number: 907451036 . . THE WEEK YOU WEREN'T HERE is a poignant and wry portrait of a young writer closing in on the last of his undergraduate days. Charles Blackstone's prose is a seamless match for Hunter's fragmented stream-of-consciousness. From encounters with the persistent stalker Kate, to the elusive Dewey, and the surprisingly independent sorority girl, Lila, Hunter exemplifies our longing for the defining moment--as fragile and quixotic a dream as life itself.
ISBN: 1605986291. OCLC Number: 870098430 Pegasus Books,. . A young English teacher falls glass-first into a love affair - and the world of wine - when he meets a famous and enchanting sommelier.
