In Less is Lost, narrator Robert Petkoff clearly enjoys himself in recounting the insightful and humorous misadventures of hapless gay minor novelist Arthur Less, first encountered in Andrew Sean Greer’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, LESS. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly talk about the fun of getting back on the road with Arthur, this time traveling across the United States on a literary tour to earn desperately needed cash. Arthur’s partner, Freddy, tells Arthur’s tale with wry amusement. Petkoff creates a host of vocally distinct characters with accents and personalities as broad as the country. Through his adventures, the listener begins to understand the kindhearted Arthur and his quest for certainty.
