Isn't It Romantic?: An Entertainment by Ron Hansen

Isn't It Romantic?: An Entertainment - Ron Hansen

A very quick read, and somewhat predictable later on. Fun story though, albeit a strange one. I read this after enjoying "Mariette in Ecstasy," by the same author, though this book is quite different. I may read more by him in the future.
