really liked it
bookshelves: first-reads

This book takes a hilarious look at the failed writing career of protagonist Dale Hammer. I was hooked just reading the "Preflight" as Hazelgrove calls his preface. It speaks of the protagonist's traveling salesman father and his childhood, both of which I could identify with. The novel follows Hammer as a father, husband, and lost character. The search for what he wants to do with his life seems to fit the struggle when we ask, "What now?"
