Though he now splits his time between the United States and Italy, San Franciscans are fortunate to claim Pulitzer Prize-winning author Andrew Sean Greer as one of our own. His six works of fiction include the bestsellers The Story of a Marriage, The Confessions of Max Tivoli, Less (which earned him his Pulitzer), and now the long awaited followup Less is Lost. Called “wildly, painfully, funny” by David Sedaris, it catches up with the lovable Arthur Less as he and his pug travel across the country in a rusty camper van on a literary tour. Greer is the winner of the California Book Award, the New York Public Library Young Lions Award, and his work has appeared in Esquire, The Paris Review, The New Yorker, and many more.
