A couple of months ago, we produced the audiobook for Eleanor Or The Rejection of the Progress of Love by Anna Moschavokis. Anna Wrote an essay addressing the writing and publishing of the novel. It was originally published on The Paris Review, but now it’s been recorded for The Talking Book Podcast. It’s called The Capacity to Be Alone. It's awesome.

Anna Moschovakis : Eleanor or The Rejection of the Progress of Love
Between The Covers : Conversations with Writers in Fiction, Nonfiction & Poetry
“Anna Moschovakis takes the reader straight to the terrifying edge: that moment where one ages out of youthfulness & begins to flutter in the debris of middle living, flattened out by technology, wild-goose chasing one’s data. Yet, the deeper we look into Eleanor’s unsettledness, the more we see & the more hope we find in her rhizomic wandering. This is a beautiful slow burn of a novel.” —Renee Gladman “By turns funny, melancholic, & provocative, Anna’s novel undoes & remakes the conventions of realist fiction through repetition & compression of time . . . It is ‘luminously ordinary’ in its progression, where profound shifts are as small as a postcard written or a hand touched.” —BOMB The post Anna Moschovakis : Eleanor or The Rejection of the Progress of Love appeared first on Tin House.
