Ever since Lafayette Proulx quit his day job, left his wife, hauled his dog and his Royal portable across town to Judi Dubey's house, and set out at last to be a fiction writer, his life has been a sordid mess. Judi's exotically dysfunctional family isn't all to blame. Sure, the murders are disconcerting. And, yes, Judi's father's gone off the deep end. Worse are the vicious rejection letters Laf gets from editors. To top it off, Laf's falling for Judi at the same time he's nettled with guilt, is in marriage counseling with his wife, and is writing his long-hoped-for novel. When Judi is diagnosed with stage IV cancer, they both struggle to find the memory that will comfort, the truth that will redeem in a world where everyone suffers some kind of love disorder. John Dufresne, called "a highly readable Faulkner," will once again take the literary world by storm with this new tragicomic tale.… (mais)

Adult fiction. Probably an ok book, I just didn't feel like dealing with so much dysfunction right now. I got 50 pages in and decided I didn't care about any of the characters. ( )

I did this book a grave disservice by attempting to read it during the fall semester. This is the type of book that deserves to be read without distraction. Unfortunately, I had to keep putting it down to grade papers and read book club books, so I kept losing the narrative thread. John Dufresne writes beautifully and his book about creative writing, The Lie That Tells a Truth, is one of the best there is. His characters are quirky and real; his writing reflects life as it is truly lived--all the humor, pain, and joy from which daily existence is created. However, having said that, it was at times a little too real with too much description of the minutiae of that same daily existence. I enjoyed the main character, Laf. While flawed and at times careless with the emotions of those who love him, he is a very likable character who offers no apologies. ( )

A man is dealing not only with his girlfriend's cancer, but her bizarre and felonious family. I expected it to be compelling and moving, not a boring and trite read. My first disappointment from Dufresne. ( )

Rarely have I laughed so often while reading a book or, coming to the end, cried so hard. Love Warps the Mind a Little is a masterpiece of the genre that writers call the "funny-sad novel," where humor both defies and gives shape to grief. It is rich entertainment, sheer lunacy, moonshine for the wounded heart.
