Why did I read this?  That is a question I have been asking myself ever since I finished it.  The only reason I read it was it won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

Okay, an aging mid level writer is suffering a mid life crisis as his young lover prepares to marry.  He decides to accept invitations to various parts of the world for conferences to avoid the wedding.  He travels to Germany, Italy, Mexico, India and Japan for all kinds of various literary reasons.  I can’t find anything I liked about the book, even after it was pointed out that some think it is a satirical look at the literary world.
