Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perry Lafond, approaching forty, knows he's had a decent life with his attractive, longtime wife, Marcia. But he's come to the point where he is not sure that he can continue on. In the meantime, there's the question of children. His wife, battling infertility, is obsessed with the idea of having a baby. Perry wants a child too--maybe. Suddenly, he can't keep his mind off other women. In his job as a probation officer he becomes recklessly infatuated with the pretty, beleaguered wife of a parolee who has a young child. Perry's own confusion endangers this child as well as a nephew under his care. Always unflinchingly honest, Jack Driscoll tracks a man's headlong--and just possibly redemptive--leap into chaos.

Synopsis:

Nominating Lucky Man, Lucky Woman for the Pushcart Editors' Book Award, Rick Bass called it "one of the best novels I've read all year--an incredible story, not of high drama but rather of a marriage, of all things."

Synopsis:

When his marriage starts to fail, a probation officer becomes recklessly infatuated with the pretty, beleaguered wife of a parolee who has a young child. His own confusion endangers them, as well as a nephew under his care, in this novel of a man's headlong--and just possibly redemptive--leap into chaos.
