Collecting Thomas Farber's non-fiction on writing and the writer's life (including all of Compared to What?), A Lover's Quarrel contains this gifted author's meditation on his vocation. Anatomist, ironist, and moralist, Farber achieves effects of luminous integrity with deceptively simple means. A gift to writers who seek to understand what informs and haunts their metier, A Lover's Quarrel is also for any reader whose life has been shaped-or saved-by story.
