Sex. Wine. Jazz. Existential dread. Meet Bob, a sarcastic radio technician who has enough on his plate trying to navigate his forties without his Cambridge neighborhood becoming overrun by urban treehuggers and uppity intellectuals in tracksuits. Between a love triangle, a rapidly shrinking job market, and the looming threat of finally growing up, Bob is forced to dig deep--man--and figure out not just what he wants, but who he is. Change hits hard when you live in the past. Louie Cronin's breakthrough novel is a coming-of-middle-age story that pays homage to the everyday.
