A word or phrase formed by reordering the letters of another word or phrase, such as satin to stain. However, here in her first novel, short story writer Lorrie Moore born , reordered not letters but the different scenes in order for her reader to choose the one that he or she likes best.
I have seen this approached in a couple of movies but my first time for a novel. But Anagrams is not an erotic story. It is a bittersweet love story about people in love and falling out of love. Reading it is like watching a romance-comedy movie set in an American city with characters in their last chances to find life-long partners. I would have given it five stars if I read this maybe a couple of decades ago. However, her imagination on the different versions is something that is commendable since all of them are not only plausible but also funny, playful and poignant that makes it hard for you to choose which version you want to remember for the rest of your life.
Also, unlike some of the novels of Haruki Murakami, who was also first known to be as a short story writer, Anagrams does not give me you that feeling that you are reading short stories merged into a big story just to make up a novel. Regardless of which version you choose or you want to believe in, everything is still coherent and integrated. If you enjoy stories about single people looking for partners in their late 20's of early 30's, try reading this book. It is a joy to read and you will surely see yourself in one of the versions of the three characters.
I am now looking forward to more Moore books. View all 4 comments. This book was devastating — devastatingly funny, devastatingly honest. And its denouement, or the final unraveling of plot complexities, is devastatingly sad. Let me back up for a minute. So the key characters — like letters in an anagrammatic word — function differently, contribute to a separate-though-equally-plausible reality, when located in This book was devastating — devastatingly funny, devastatingly honest. So the key characters — like letters in an anagrammatic word — function differently, contribute to a separate-though-equally-plausible reality, when located in varying relationships with each other.
The elements consist, primarily, of Benna, Gerard, and Eleanor. Eleanor, as friend and rival both imagined and real , perhaps functions hermeneutically, as a way to comment on the story, present a foil, or just add a third tip to the triangle, echoing the question: why is it so hard for two people to just love each other?
Known principally as a short story writer, Moore creates a novel with a vividly cinematic eye an image of a menstrual stain on a nightgown waving in a tree at a yardsale resonates with loss and loneliness paired with pithy humor. The characters are often pictured as flailing intellectuals, with jobs like hotel lounge pianist, geriatric aerobics teacher, poetry teacher at a community college, representing, yes, characters of a certain age, angry at themselves for not making harder decisions, for not taking harder chances, and angry at the world for making it so damn hard.
And it is biting. The description of the book as a love story, and of the characters as angry, does not quite give the novel credit. Jul 04, Glenn Sumi rated it it was ok. Like letters in an anagram, Moore switches characters, professions and relationships. In the first section, for instance, Benna is a lounge singer and Gerard teaches aerobics to children.
In the second, Benna teaches aerobics to seniors, while Gerard is working on a rock version of a Baroque opera.
In another, Gerard is a lounge singer who wants to become an opera singer, while Benna teaches at a community college. Get it? And themes like illness and infidelity are thrown into the mix. But the result is like eating candy.

Today I thought I'd lost my copy of Anagrams and a little voice asked me if that would be so bad a thing to happen. As I said in my update, I was getting the idea that Moore is less. Er, is that still funny?

Seriously guys, it'll take you like two minutes. I'll wait. Okay, good. So I don't know which came first, "Happy Endings" or Anagrams , but I feel almost sure that one of them had to influence the other. Anagrams is about two people, Benna and Gerard, who are in love - sort of. When we first meet them, they are living in ad Margaret Atwood has a great short story called "Happy Endings" that I kept thinking about as I read this book.
When we first meet them, they are living in adjacent apartments which they essentially share. Benna is a nightclub singer, Gerard works with preschoolers. We see them interact, talking about their lives and generally being messed-up people, and then a new chapter starts. In this one, Gerard is a singer and Benna teaches dance to senior citizens.
They talk about their lives and are generally messed-up people, and then a new chapter starts. The details of Benna and Gerard's lives change, but the central story stays the same: two lonely, unhappy people are trying to figure out their lives and each other, and not doing a very good job at it. I make it sound depressing, but it's surprisingly not. Lorrie Moore's characters are smart and witty and sprinkle their conversation with literary puns and play-on-words that are actually entertaining, unlike the work of some pun-loving authors I could name but won't Did you guess Jasper Fforde?
Jasper Fforde was the author I was talking about.
