The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells Book Summary

From the critically acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller The Confessions of Max Tivoli comes The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells, a rapturously romantic story of a woman who finds herself transported to the “other lives” she might have lived.

After the death of her beloved twin brother and the abandonment of her long-time lover, Greta Wells undergoes electroshock therapy. Over the course of the treatment, Greta finds herself repeatedly sent to 1918, 1941, and back to the present. Whisked from the gas-lit streets and horse-drawn carriages of the West Village to a martini-fueled lunch at the Oak Room, in these other worlds, Greta finds her brother alive and well—though fearfully masking his true personality. And her former lover is now her devoted husband…but will he be unfaithful to her in this life as well? Greta Wells is fascinated by her alter egos: in 1941, she is a devoted mother; in 1918, she is a bohemian adulteress.

In this spellbinding novel by Andrew Sean Greer, each reality has its own losses, its own rewards; each extracts a different price. Which life will she choose as she wrestles with the unpredictability of love and the consequences of even her most carefully considered choices?

The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells - Andrew Sean Greer Book Reviews

  • Hidden Gem! (Mac-Chick)

    I loved this book - what a hidden gem! I could not put it down and was disappointed that I had to go to work so I couldn't finish reading it in one sitting. I throughly loved the way each of the 3 stories unfolded in in different dates, the weaving characters lives, how they could separate and come back together in another time. The book is written very cleverly and yet with great sensitivity of what it's like to live in these very different timelines. The writing itself is beautiful and I found that there were some paragraphs that I would read over and over just because of how beautifully they were worded and the thought-provoking questions that came up. It's most definitely a good read.
