The Discreet Pleasures of Rejection, Martin Page

Virgil is a Parisian cross between David Sedaris and Monk. In this world but not quite of this world he is nonplussed one evening when he returns home to hear his girlfriend breaking up with him via answering machine. But who is she? It’s a question only his friend Armelle (the lesbian erotic magazine model) and his shrink Dr. Zetkin can unravel. And does Virgil really want to know who she is? This laugh out loud paperback original will have you reading sections to friends and strangers alike. Penguin, $14
