An incisive, witty, and tender debut novel about love and commitment, celebrity and obsession, poetry and reality TV.
“This unassuming, sharp novel quietly questions love and the nature of perception in an overconnected world.”—The Seattle Times
Intellectually ambitious and keenly observed, The Bachelor is also an absorbing coming-of-age tale that tells the story of finding one’s footing in love and art. If salvation can no longer be found in fame, can it still be found in romantic relationships? In an era in which reality TV can make two dozen women fall in love with one man in six weeks, where does entertainment end and reality begin? Why do we, season after season, repeat the same mistakes in love and life?
