About Book

Benna Carpenter makes anagrams out of words - but also out of life. Changing the facts, she invents new roles - night-club singer, aerobics teacher, poet; and new people - a daughter, a lover, a friend. In Anagrams, Lorrie Moore deftly weaves a complex plot with sensitivity and razor-sharp wit.
