Summary
'One of the best novels of this or any year . . . A flat-out funny, sexy, and poignant romantic thriller.' 'David Abrams, author of FobbitThey're calling it the 'Storm of the Century,' so Eric stops at the market for provisions on his way home from work. But when the unkempt and seemingly unstable young woman in front of him in line comes up short on cash, a kind of old-school charity takes hold of his heart'twenty bucks and a ride home is the least he can do, right' Trouble is, Danielle doesn't really have a home. She's squatting in a cabin deep in the woods, no electricity, no heat, nothing but the nearby river to sustain her. She'll need food, water, firewood, and that's just to get her through the storm: there's a whole Maine winter ahead. So he gets her set up, departs with relief, climbs to the road, but his car has been towed with his phone inside, and the snow is coming down with historic speed and violence. There's no choice but to return to the cabin. Danielle is terrified, then merely hostile'who is this guy with his big idea that it's she who needs rescuing' As the snow keeps mounting, they're forced to ride out the storm together. For better and for worse.' The Remedy for Love is a harrowing story about the truths we reveal when there is no time or space for artifice. 'The Remedy for Love is not the remedy for sleep deprivation. You'll stay up all night . . . It is relentless and brilliant. Leave it to Roorbach to tease out the subtlest nuances in the progress of love while stoking a tale that is as gripping as any Everest expedition--and that is also tender and terrifying and funny and, in the end, so true it seems inevitable. I'm not sure there's another American writing today who can lay down a love story, or any story, with the depth and appeal and freshness of Bill Roorbach.' 'Peter Heller, author of The Dog Stars
