Everyone knows someone like the nameless narrator in former SNL writer Patricia Marx’s Him Her Him Again The End of Him. Our nameless heroine starts an absolutely neurotic twenty-one-year-old college grad student, trying to decide on what the subject of her thesis is. While at Cambridge, she stumbles upon a loquacious cad named Eugene. Everyone has those ludicrously-bad college boyfriends, but no one can top Eugene. He’s possibly one of the most obnoxious fops I’ve ever read: an absolute narcissist incapable of using monosyllabic words, whom is quick to remind everyone around him of his beloved almost-nominated-for-a-Nobel-prize grandfather. Of course, eventually Eugene and the narrator break up, and then her neurosis reaches galactic proportions.
