To Venus and Back – One Man’s Quest to Rediscover Love is a work of non-fiction in the memoir subgenre. It is aimed at mature readers and was penned by author Turner Grant. The book follows the experiences of the author two years after losing his wife and becoming a single parent as he seeks love in a world that he doesn’t recognize from his years of dating as a young man. In the landscape of digital dating, he meets many single women who lead him on a complicated adventure to the new world and possibly even his new future.
Memoirs like this are exceptionally hard to come by, ones that take a topic familiar to many and dive deeply into the personal impact of the topic through a frank and open willingness to share by the author. Turner Grant leaves nothing off the table as he shares his odyssey through the world of mid-life digital dating, candidly writing about every experience so that we may learn from his experiences. I was frequently taken aback by the details being shared with me, and it made the experience of reading this book feel akin to two friends sitting down together to discuss the trials and tribulations of their lives. Alongside this wonderful willingness to share is a gift for a particularly delightful brand of prose that allows the author to move seamlessly between the heavy and impactful moments of life and the lighter, more amusing moments. Overall, To Venus and Back is an engaging and appealing read for those interested in romance stories grounded in the real world.
