Anna Karenina left her husband for a dashing officer. Lady Chatterley left hers for a gameskeeper. Now Alice Coombs has left her boyfriend for nothing...nothing at all. Just how that should have come to pass and what Philip Engstrand, Alice's spurned boyfriend, can do about it is the premise for this vertiginous speculative romance by the acclaimed author of Gun, with Occasional Music.
Ingenious, hilarious, and genuinely mind-expanding, As She Climbed Across the Table is the best boy-meets-girl-meets-void-story ever written.
