About the Author

Louise Wareham Leonard writes with such rare intensity, rage, sadness and ferocious love, she lights up a world where expectancies and experiences of desire, sexuality and authenticity are redefined and exploded.Both devastating and, often, laugh-out-loud funny, her work has a savage purity forgiving both all and nothing demanding truth, wresting us from darkness to the ethereal, offering both solace and change. Born in New Zealand, she moved to Manhattan at age twelve, attended Columbia College and has received, amongst other awards, the James Jones Literary Society First Novel Award. She lives in upstate New York."

Reviews

"52 Men suggests that our identity is at least in part a product of our romantic past, and that the particulars we choose to depict that past are significant, comprising a kind of personal psychobiography. . . . Leonard's focus is zoom-lens tight: she describes the various men, zeroing in on what they said and did--and how she responded--in a pivotal moment. . . . She suffered a grievous early trauma . . . and she's wounded. Yet she's also slyly, coolly observant and has transformed her experiences into art. . . . We know her, ultimately, through the book she has written. The narrative specifics she selects to describe the men are hers, as is the deadpan humor; all of it arises from her artistic consciousness. . . . Although in style and tone 52 Men differs from either Elizabeth Hardwick's Sleepless Nights or Renata Adler's Speedboat, it is, like both of these books, a novel of impressions unified by the author's sensibility." --Amanda Fortini, Los Angeles Review of Books
