Tim Kreider

On a night that has Valentine’s Day on the near horizon, popular essayist and cartoonist Tim Kreider visits with first book of essays since his very well-received We Learn Nothing, I Wrote This Book Because I Love You (Simon & Schuster).

“Essayist and cartoonist Kreider returns with another incisive and cutting collection of essays, this time loosely focused on the women in his life. Over the course of the book, he recounts a trip with a close friend aboard a circus train bound for Mexico, a whirlwind affair with a sex worker, and the surreal experience of falling in love with a married friend in the weeks following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This collection is noteworthy not so much for the insights into dating or women, but rather for Kreider’s humane outlook coupled with his often-wry sense of humor ... Kreider’s clever hand and philosophic – rather than solipsistic – viewpoint place him in a different realm than writers like David Sedaris and David Foster Wallace who share his affection for details, uncommon settings, and nuance.” –Publishers Weekly.
