The Book of Trouble: A Romance The Book of Trouble: A Romance

by Ann Marlowe

Book Reviews

"You won't soon forget The Book of Trouble. Ann Marlowe tells a crushing love story, and somehow also manages to weave in exotic tales of travel and fascinating tangents about everything from cousin marriage to fake Arabic."
--James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces and My Friend Leonard

"Ann Marlowe has a sense of adventure and style and a startling intelligence that make The Book of Trouble a must-read. Whether she's writing about Iraq, Afghanistan, or the West Village, and whether you agree with her conclusions or not, her opinions are always fresh, nuanced, and thoroughly her own."
--Gary Shteyngart, author of The Russian Debutante's Handbook

"The Book of Trouble is about a difficult love affair across an age and cultural divide, but it transcends its circumstances to become an eloquent meditation on marriage, freedom, religion, and gender. Ann Marlowe feels a lot, but her feelings are always nuanced and contradictory; her book is an unusually rich reading of her emotional and intellectual conflicts."
--Edmund White, author of A Boy's Own Story

"A brilliant, cool-eyed wonder that brought me into Marlowe's passions and then broke my heart. In the process I was brought to a deeper, personal understanding of so many things -- which is what we need from a work of art."
--Samantha Dunn, author of Faith in Carlos Gomez and Not by Accident
