Publisher Comments:

At the age of thirty-five, Matthew Vabers life is so messy it can only be at a turning point. In one direction is the neon glare of his fathers recent suicide, and in the other is the tough love of his fluorescent mother. Hed love to find love, but he cant make it twenty minutes into a first date without spotting that fatal flaw. In spite of Matthews better intentions, he always finds himself back at the same old place: 555-PUMP, “New Yorks only phone line for men who are serious about their bodies!” Eventually, even Matthew realizes the long odds of making a love connection on a sex line, but then the pound sign connects him to Henry. Much to his dismay, Matthew cant find a single problem with him. In fact, Henry may be just the one to lead Matthew past his recent tragedies and childhood traumas. If Matthew lets himself follow, that is. Philip Galaness dynamic wit and idiosyncratic charm make Fathers Day a compassionate, heart-melting story and a delightful debut.
