Overview

Byron Ayanoglu's 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 début 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 'Pennyloafers' McLeod. But their mothers, in odd alliance, have other ideas. Meanwhile, elsewhere, the lovers' 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 (that's Greek for joie de vivre) they will!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A humorous semi-political romp... engagingly presented [with] much mouth-watering food...."

— Books in Canada, May 2002

"It's 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."

— Gazette, June 2002

"... 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."

— Globe & Mail, June 200
