Overview

Byron Ayanogluís Love In The Age Of Confusion is a sexy romp packed with mouth-watering descriptions of food, endless supplies of ouzo, gags, and absurd collisions. In this fictional dÈbut by the well-known food-writer, pure laine Quebec locks horns with moneyed Westmount when coquettish, street-wise Arletty Daoust-Tremblay dazzles, then dumps, pampered scion and fledgling experimental filmmaker Ari ëPennyloafersí McLeod. But their mothers, in odd alliance, have other ideas. Meanwhile, elsewhere, the loversí fathers throw punches and speechify. Romantic comedy meets political satire. Love In The Age Of Confusion is a tour de force in which opposites attract, myth tussles with myth, and delightful, even delicious explosions go off. Will the politically confounded young lovers reconcile? You bet your kefi (thatís Greek for joie de vivre) they will!

Critical Comment

ìA humorous semi-political romp... engagingly presented [with] much mouth-watering food....î

ó Books in Canada, May 2002

ìItís a time-honoured device, the English-French love story, laden with symbolism. But no one before Ayanoglu has ever played it so cleverly by the menu.î

ó Gazette, June 2002

ì... a delight, with dialogue that reads at a gallop, pinpoints each character, and crackles with snappy put-downs and smartass wit...blending screwball comedy with bristling social comment.î

ó Globe & Mail, June 2002

ìMontreal food writer Byron Ayanogluís fictional debut weaves all the beauty, delight, and intrique of this fair city into a love story of star-crossed lovers each coming from two extremes of the political spectrum.î

ó The Link, Sept. 2002
