About the book:

Lafayette Proulx is affectionately called Laf by his friends, and with good reason. As the likeable narrator of John Dufresne's terrific new book Love Warps the Mind a Little, Laf has an eye for the comic elements that can be found in the everyday events of life, and an armchair philosopher's sense of detached bemusement. Laf quits his day job and decides to pursue his dream of writing fiction, a move precipitated by the break-up of his marriage and followed by a torrent of rejection slips. He moves in with his hesitant girlfriend Judi, and, for a time, the story sets into a domestic story of befuddled affection and incidental affairs. Then Judi is diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and from this point Love Warps the Mind a Little becomes a stunning love story, sweetly moving in its description of love amid tragic circumstances. Its honesty and insight are wonderful, and the comic elements are never lost. The acclaimed author of Louisiana Power & Light has met the high expectations of his critics and readers alike with this wonderful novel.
