Want Not – Jonathan Miles
In Want Not, Miles takes a giant leap forward with this highly inventive and corrosively funny story of our times, a three-pronged tale of human excess that sifts through the detritus of several disparate lives, all conjoined in their come-hell-or- high-water search for fulfillment.
As the novel opens on Thanksgiving Day, readers are telescoped into the worlds of a “freegan” couple living off the grid in Manhattan, a once prominent linguist struggling with midlife, and a New Jersey debt collection magnate with a second chance at getting things right. Want and desire propel each one forward on their paths toward something, anything more, but when their worlds collide, briefly, randomly, yet irrevocably, the weight of that wanting ultimately undoes each of them, leaving them to pick up the pieces from what’s left behind.
