Desperate Characters is a story about the desperation in the lives and marriage of Sophie and Otto Bentwood. They are an affluent, middle-aged couple of German descent that live in New York, in Brooklyn. Otto is a wealthy and competent attorney, while Sophie stays at home.

      Desperate Characters soars above every other work of American realist fiction since the Second World War.' JONATHAN FRANZEN Otto and Sophie Bentwood live childless in a renovated Brooklyn brownstone.

    Desperate Characters (), a classic novel by Paula Fox, tells the story of an unhappily married couple who rediscover their love for each other after a catalog of small disasters. The book was heralded as one of the best examples of Post-War American literature.   “Desperate Times” by Adam Kluger turns the conventions of short story compilations inside out by keeping each story breezy and fluid but complex enough to make you feel the soul behind each character’s story arc. Once the beat of a story or character is hit, it is on to the next. Before.
