Change is possible for those who can open to it (4.2 *s)

Life is going well for Zack King. He’s marrying beautiful, leggy, and blue-blood blonde Hope, a girl he has trouble believing has fallen for him. His job as a middleman between clients and suppliers may not be a life’s calling, but is okay. At age thirty-two, he’s trying to be everything his louse of a father was not when he essentially dropped out of the lives of his mother and two brothers many years ago. Apparently, the equanimity in his is too good to be true.

This book is a well-paced, insightful, amusing, and sympathetic look at how a man’s life can rather quickly unravel. It’s hard to say what is more disconcerting to Zack: the unexpected presence of his father Norm at his apartment door or the sudden appearance of blood in his urine. He doesn’t want to alarm Hope with his medical problem, so he seeks the consolation of Tamara, the widow of his former best friend Rael, who sadly did not survive a car wreck in which Zack was the passenger, after a night of partying in Atlantic City. Zack has been a pillar of strength for Tamara over the last two years, but his deeper feelings for her, which he has harbored for the longest time, are, much to his chagrin, starting to surface more and more.

The book is not a deep psychological study of life and relationships. It has zany moments usually involving his father who pops Viagra like it is aspirin, simply to maintain constant, though unemployed, feelings of potency. But there is enough introspection and regrouping for all the parties to begin to move beyond feelings of hurt, loss, abandonment, and, more importantly for Zack, violating trusts. The author shows a very deft touch in this well-constructed, easy-flowing book.
