Publisher's Summary

Former Saturday Night Live writer Patricia Marx brings her clever, deadpan humor to this addictive novel about one woman's comic obsession with her first boyfriend. A neurotic young graduate student looking for distraction from her doomed thesis is inexplicably swept off her feet by a narcissistic philosophy professor. The obsession continues even after he has dumped her for someone even needier and she has given up on school and become a television writer. Meeting again in New York, they begin an adulterous affair that, of course, can only end in some kind of crisis.
Smart, lively, and original, Him Her Him Again the End of Him is an endlessly entertaining re-imagining of the comedy of manners.

No Humor Still No Humor End of Humor

This is a depressing book. I bought it because of Steve Martin's recommendation. I wonder if he read it. or he owed someone a favor. I guess I just do not see the humor in a woman who is devoted to a man who takes her for granted and she requires a full decade to come to her senses. Ha ha! I would have rather seen the end of her, and a lot sooner. I listened to the WHOLE book waiting for redemption, but it never arrived. If this is "dry" humor, it's way too dry for me.

Do Not Operate ANY Machinary While Listening

At first, I thought this book was simply a poor match between story line and narrator. Then I realized this book was simply poorly written. There is no substance to the character; no growth. The way in which the author filled the passages with a long - winded roll call of "friends" and their opinions was painful to both my ears and psyche. Don't bother! Her monotoned delivery will have you falling asleep at the wheel of whatever you are operating.
