All That Man Is is billed as a novel but it’s really a set of short stories. I kept hoping they would come together in some way but they don’t. Each of them features a man, from adolescence to retirement age, struggling to keep it together and find an acceptable love interest. We take planes, yachts, cars all across Europe and analyze feelings of hopelessness and inadequacy.
I was bored. Clearly (male) critics liked this book much more than I did.
