Learning What Love Means

Mathieu Lindon's father Jérôme Lindon was the founder of Éditions de Minuit, the legendary French publishing company that not only gave the world the nouveau roman but also nurtured two Nobel Prize winners, Samuel Beckett and Michel Simon. Lindon rebelled against his father with the full battery of a "disastrous adolescence." From the beginning, he had realized that he would not perpetuate the dynasty his father had created. For one thing, Mathieu Lindon is gay: he wouldn't create any progeny, and the line of descent would stop with him. As this turbulent memoir reveals, it would take another literary giant-Michel Foucault-to reconcile Mathieu Lindon to his father's love. Over an intense six-year period that included one year of living together in Foucault's apartment on rue de Vaugirard, Lindon and Foucault enjoyed a passionate, productive friendship. Their social circle included other figures of the Parisian gay, literary, and art scenes (including Hervé Guibert and Daniel Defert), creating a satisfying, self-invented, pleasure-oriented surrogate family that eventually produced an alchemical miracle: Lindon reevaluated and accepted his father's love. Foucault's humanity and inventiveness gave Lindon the clarity and the magnanimity to accept the gifts his father had always offered.

It could well be their last visit.Mack Stafford, a hard-drinking and low-grossing run-of-the-mill divorce lawyer gets a miracle phone call with a completely unexpected offer to settle some old, forgotten cases for more money than he has ever seen. Mack is suddenly bored with the law, fed up with his wife and his life, and makes drastic plans to finally escape.Quiet, dull Sidney, a data collector for an insurance company, perfects his blackjack skills in hopes of bringing down the casino empire of Clanton's most ambitious hustler, Bobby Carl Leach, who, among other crimes, has stolen Sidney's wife.Three good ol' boys from rural Ford County begin a journey to the big city of Memphis to give blood to a grievously injured friend.

It's a sad, languid place with little controversy, until Gilbert arrives. Posing as a lowly paid bedpan boy, he is in reality a brilliant stalker with an uncanny ability to sniff out the assets of those "seniors" he professes to love.One of the hazards of litigating against people in a small town is that one day, long after the trial, you will probably come face-to-face with someone you've beaten in a lawsuit. Lawyer Stanley Wade bumps into an old adversary, a man with a long memory, and the encounter becomes a violent ordeal.Clanton is rocked with the rumor that the gay son of a prominent family has finally come home, to die.

Often hilarious, frequently moving, and always entertaining, this collection makes it abundantly clear why John Grisham is our most popular storyteller.From the Hardcover edition.
