“Chilly scenes of winter” by Ann Beattie

“Chilly Scenes of Winter has one protagonist, Charles, who pursues Laura in various comic or bittersweet ways. There are no real antagonists, however, nor even any mean-spirited characters, only a series of portraits of attenuated survivors of past emotional scars or disappointments. As Charles lives out his dreary coming-of-age, he seeks companionship primarily from Sam, an unemployed friend with a perpetual cold. Both are bemused at the passing of time and unable to come to terms with it.”
