Descripción

BRAND NEW & Collectible. First Edition, First Printing. Signed by author with the simple message, "Love and coffee". A sly, romantic comedy. Protagonist Larry Wyler hails from Minnesota, but of St. Paul's working class district rather than Lake Wobegon. First published in the New Yorker, a hugely successful first novel (titled Spacious Skies), Larry leaves his wife behind to take up office in the magazine of magazines, and residence in the city of cities.But success was unsustainable --- a second novel (Amber Waves of Grain) bombs and writer's block sets in. A job as a newspaper advice columnist under the name Mr. Blue (Keillor did actually write such a column under the same pseudonym) comes his way, which over time permits him some measure of clarity and direction in his own life. Our hero stands tall, confronts the evil publisher of the New Yorker and devotes himself to win back his wife's (college sweetheart, Democrat, and social worker) affections.

Sinopsis:

When Larry Wyler heads east from Minnesota to New York in pursuit of the celebrated life of the writers he admires and the three-martini lunch, he leaves behind Iris, the college sweetheart he married. When he abandons the rural flats of St. Paul for the fabled high-rise housing William Shawn and his famous magazine, Wyler stumbles into meteoric success as a writer and a womanizer. However, he's soon brought low by an even quicker series of failures on both fronts. Iris catches Wyler in flagrante, living the New York high life, and when The New Yorker gives him the boot the jig is up. A chastened man, Wyler returns to Minnesota, where the only writing job he can get is as an advice columnist for the lovelorn. Writing under the pen name "Mr. Blue," Wyler doles out wry, knowing, and practical advice about seduction and mating to the heartbroken and the lonely. And only slowly, painfully, does Wyler figure out for himself how, after losing love, you can eventually get it back.

From one of America's most beloved writers comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about ambition, success, and failure as well as the virtues of real love and a steady writing job.
