About this product
- DescriptionTold by a former girlfriend that he lacks the necessary quality of empathy, the narrator of Kiss & Tell decides to write a biography of the next person who walks into his life. At a party, he meets Isabel Rogers, a production assistant at a small stationery company in London, by all appearances an ordinary woman. Beginning his research, he encounters a host of problems, t the least of which are the disadvantages of being a man when understanding a woman is the goal. But as the narrator's relationship with Isabel deepens, she becomes remarkable, to him and to the reader. Her smallest quirks, private habits, family secrets, opinions, and stories are objects of the most painstaking investigation - and unexpectedly attractive to her biographer, who finds himself falling in love.
