Summary
"Reality and dream collide in Amy Bonnaffons's dazzling, darkly playful debut novel about a love affair between the living and the dead. For weeks, Rachel has been noticing the same golden-haired young man sitting at her Brooklyn bus stop, staring off with a melancholy air. When, one day, she finally musters the courage to introduce herself, the chemistry between them is undeniable: Thomas is wise, witty, handsome, mysterious, clearly a kindred spirit. There's just one tiny problem: he's dead. Stuck in a surreal limbo governed by bureaucracy, Thomas is unable to 'cross over' to the afterlife until he completes a ninety-day stint on earth, during which time he is forbidden to get involved with a member of the living--lest he incur 'regrets.' When Thomas and Rachel break this rule, they unleash a cascade of bizarre, troubling consequences. Set in the hallucinatory borderland between life and death, The Regrets is a gloriously strange and breathtakingly sexy exploration of love--and jealousy, and heartbreak, and redemption. It's also the story about the cataclysmic force of fantasies, the way we use other people to escape ourselves, and the painful, exhilarating work of waking up to reality." --
