Mislabeled boxes, problems with visiting nurses, confusing notes, an outing to the county fairsuch are the obstacles in the way of the unnamed narrator of The End of the Story as she attempts to organize her memories of a love affair into a novel. With compassion, wit, and what appears to be candor, she seeks to determine what she actually knows about herself and her past, but we begin to suspect, along with her, that given the elusiveness of memory and understanding, any tale retrieved from the past must be fiction.

A truly original writer who inspires you to think about life.
Any of us literary intellectual type gals who have had a crush that we loathed ourselves for but had the crush anyway will love this book. We will all recognize ourselves in this witty tongue not totally in cheek love story. The college town milieu is perfectly drawn.
