About this book
Humorous and poignant tale of a man caught up in a mid-life crisis, his life careening out of control as he finds himself half in love with three women, unable to understand his daughter or come to terms with his father, and burdened with too many responsibilities. "Sentence by sentence, Richard Russo shows that he is an eminently accomplished comic talent" Harry Ritchie, "The Times".
At age fifty, Professor William Henry Devereaux, Jr, has more than a mid-life crisis to deal with. As a child, his parents found him merely exasperating. Half in love with three women, unable to understand his daughter or come to terms with his father, Hank has a dangerous philosophy.
