Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The two-time National Book Award finalist delivers his most engaging and poignant book yet.
A new book by Stephen Dixon is always a cause for attention and celebration. Known to many as one of America's most talented and original writers, Dixon has delivered a major new novel that is full of charm, wit, and humanity.
In 30 Dixon presents us with life according to Gould, his brilliant fictional narrator who shares with us his thoroughly examined life from start to several finishes, encompassing his real past, imagined future, mundane present, and a full range of regrets, lapses, misjudgments, feelings, and the whole set of human emotions. All of Gould's foibles-his lusts and obsessions, fears and anxieties-are conveyed with such candor and lack of pretension that we can't help but be seduced into recognizing a little bit of Gould in us or perhaps a lot of us in Gould. For Gould is indeed an Everyman for the end of themillennium, a good man trying to live an honest life without compromise and without losing his mind.
