Louisa is the sexually adventurous daughter of a geneticist, Bear the volatile son of a plumber. They dive headfirst into a passionate but explosive affair that will alter the course of their lives, changing how they define themselves in the years and relationships that follow. Louisa Meets Bear is a gripping collection of linked stories from an author whose work starts off like a brushfire and then engulfs and burns with fury (The Huffington Post).Reading Louisa Meets Bear is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle, as we uncover the subtle and startling connections between new characters and the star-crossed lovers.

We meet a daughter who stabs her mother when she learns the truth about her father, a wife who sees herself clearly after finding a man dead on her office floor, a mother who discovers a girl in her teenage son’s bed. Each character is striking, each rendered with Gornick’s trademark sympathy and psychological acuity.

We follow them from San Francisco to New York City and from Guatemala to Venice, from 1961 to 2009, through pregnancies, tragedies, and revelations, until we return to Louisa and Bear.With the deeply human, flawed characters of Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge, and with Alice Munro’s piercing insight into the lives of women, Louisa Meets Bear grapples with whether we can—or can’t—choose how and whom we love.
