did not like it

This book was a disappointment and did not live up to its reviews. Harry Quirk, failed poet and failure as a husband tries to pull his life back together after his hot tempered latino wife throws him out after finding a book of love poems about another woman. She is sure he is having an affair. While Harry is innocent and tries to convince Luz of this she spreads the word among all their mutual friends. In additiin to having no job, no money and no place to live his son joins a religious cult that makes him a Messiah. Fortunately Harry's other child, a lesbian, freegan, takes Harry into her home and gives him the opportunity to evaluate his life and come to some drastic conclusions. A depressing view of a tortured marriage.
