Synopsis: From the acclaimed author of Leaving Brooklyn and Disturbances in the Field comes a sophisticated, droll novel about a woman whose brush with a chronic fatigue virus provokes a reexamination of her life. "(Schwartz) is a wonder to read".--Alice Adams.
From the Publisher: The Fatigue Artist is a refreshingly candid story about life, love, and survival in the contemporary world. A writer living in New York City, Laura is overwhelmed by a mysterious lethargy and retreats to her bed where she reflects on the loves and losses of her recent past and seeks the cure to her perplexing tiredness.
Fortified by the Eastern teachings of her Tai Chi instructor and the nurturing attentions of friends and a acupuncturist, Laura crawls out of her somnambulism with intelligent determination in search of peace and resurrection. The Fatigue Artist is both a moving chronicle of a woman's search for meaning and a wry depiction of modern urban life.
