Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A story of grand faux pas and dazzling dysfunction...a wildly satirical look at the absurdities of modern life.

--The New York Times Book Review

One of five men could be Sam Callahan's father. Is knowing the truth worth the havoc he'll cause trying to find out?

Laid low by divorce-the result of an endless stream of poor choices-Sam decides it's time he met his dad. But his quest to meet the men and discover the truth does more than just shake up the five likely suspects-it pretty much napalms the lives of everyone he meets.

Wild, wonderful, and wickedly funny...Highly recommended.

- Library Journal

Ribald... comic and bawdy...oddly endearing...an effective blend of flippancy and compassion.

- Publishers Weekly

Tim Sandlin only gets better. Social Blunders is an affecting book...It is fiction to be savored.

-Larry McMurtry

A weird, funny, raunchy novel that veers wildly from pathos to slapstick and back again, and it's surprisingly effective.

-Booklist

Tim Sandlin's stuff is as tight and funny as anyone doing this comedy novel thing.

- Christopher Moore

Synopsis:

One of five men could be Sam Callahan's father. Is knowing the truth worth the damage he'll cause trying to find out who?

Laid low by his second divorce-one of an endless stream of poor choices-33-year-old Sam Callahan decides it's time he met his dad. But his quest to meet the men and discover the truth does more than just shake up the five likely suspects, it pretty much napalms the lives of everyone he meets. Called a story of grand faux pas and dazzling dysfunction by the New York Times book review and funny, shocking, downright revolting, and occasionally sad by the Los Angeles Times Book Review, Social Blunders is a tour de force of hilarious modern mayhem.

Synopsis:

""Social Blunders" finds the indefatigable Sam Callahan mourning the defection of his second wife, Wanda. In an attempt to shake off the doldrums, Sam embarks on a comic quest to find the father he never knew."--"Booklist."
