Yes, it's "that" Ethan Hawke. Ethan Hawke the actor. In this slim debut novel, he tells a coming-of-age tale of a fairly unpleasant young actor from Texas named William who lives in Manhattan and is working his way through an ugly little relationship with a singer/songwriter named Sarah. William's parents married young and split up early and he's not too happy with the world at large. Sarah can't quite make heads or tails of her mother. The pair has sex in the bathroom and talks quite a bit about their relationship. It all has a certain ring of truth, but at this point it's probably safe to say that Hawke's movie agent will probably make a better living off the young actor/writer than Hawke's literary agent. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

They spent a lot of time talking about breaking up, but I never understood why they were together in the first place. They never had a full conversation, yet the reader is supposed to believe that they were in love. They didn't really even seem to like each other or have much fun together so it made sense to me that the relationship was doomed. I didn't care about either of them because I never felt like the author gave us enough insight into who these characters were, what was important to them, and WHY they insisted on behaving like imbeciles.
William seemed obsessed with sex and Sarah's physical appearance (big stretch). He also seemed a bit too self congratulatory over the fact that he was an attractive man falling for an overweight, "goofy" girl. And she wasn't much better. She never said one funny or interesting thing and I couldn't understand what either saw in the other. He was a selfish, childish, brat who would yell and swear and break things, (even if they didn't belong to him), when he didn't get his way, and she was a cold, insecure, manipulative baby who would pout and withhold sex when she felt he wasn't giving her what she wanted.
I would have enjoyed it more if the characters had had some depth and if the plot had had some emotion and body behind it. I think it had potential to be a much better book and I was disappointed that it wasn't. It felt too much like a venue for the author to show off how manly, yet sensitive he is even though he's an actor.
I wouldn't recommend it, but if you're morbid curiosity is peaked by the author's picture on the back, saved your $10.00 and check it out at the library. I'm glad I did.
