Edie Meidav is one of my favorite contemporary writers, and this is her best book, in a success of very strong books. It’s open, wounded, true. — Rick Moody

Coming out MAY 2022 – Terra Nova/MIT Press/Penguin

Edie Meidav’s Another Love Discourse is an uncategorizable triumph, and a gesture of radical intimacy with the reader, one of which Barthes would be proud.—Jonathan Lethem, author of The Arrest

A lyric novel about the play of grief, empathy, new and old love, and the quest to overcome blindness in human relations.

This ruthlessly poetic novel does something I’ve never seen before: it pulls rarefied literary theory down into the gritty canyons of heartbreak and fear. Roland Barthes here becomes a conduit for lived experience—for love and sorrow, hope and regret. One of the most original, most unlikely, and most devastating books I’ve ever come across.—David Hollander, author of Anthropica

Another Love Discourse shatters boundaries and expectations: her narrative voice—urgent, lyrical, raw—compels the reader into uncommon and intense intimacy. This powerful book will stay with you.—Claire Messud, author of A Dream Life
