Jesse y Ariadne han rehecho sus vidas, dejando en el olvido aquel primer y único amor. No se necesitan, no se aprecian... ¡SE ODIAN! Sin embargo, el destino tiene sus propias normas. Hay demasiadas cosas sin decir, muchos reproches que están a punto de estallar y un intento desesperado de ignorar lo que el otro les hace sentir, y así esconder cómo la pasión les quema en la piel cada vez que están cerca el uno del otro. Ceder a la pasión es fácil, aceptar que en realidad sus sentimientos van más allá, no. ¿Conseguirán encontrar el camino de vuelta hacia el corazón del otro y dejar de caminar en dirección contraria a sus deseos? ¿Será más fuerte el amor que el odio?

Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You is the story of James Sveck, a sophisticated, vulnerable young man with a deep appreciation for the world and no idea how to live in it. James is eighteen, the child of divorced parents living in Manhattan. Articulate, sensitive, and cynical, he rejects all of the assumptions that govern the adult world around him–including the expectation that he will go to college in the fall. He would prefer to move to an old house in a small town somewhere in the Midwest. Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You takes place over a few broiling days in the summer of 2003 as James confides in his sympathetic grandmother, stymies his canny therapist, deplores his pretentious sister, and devises a fake online identity in order to pursue his crush on a much older coworker. Nothing turns out how he'd expected. "Possibly one of the all-time great New York books, not to mention an archly comic gem" (Peter Gadol, LA Weekly), Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You is the insightful, powerfully moving story of a young man questioning his times, his family, his world, and himself.
