Jonathan Baumbach

YOU or The Invention of Memory"

YOU or The Invention of Memory (2008)
Joanna Scott writes:
"YOU is a wise, witty meditation on the mysteries of
love. And because the brilliant Jonathan Baumbach
is the author, it is also a house of mirrors in which
a single relationship is fractured into infinite
possibilities and the corridors lead deep into a
labyrinth of memory and desire. At every point, YOU
offers us a new way to look at ourselves, startling us
with uncanny reflections."
