I think I have now read all of Jonathan Tropper's books and they have all been great in my opinion. Everything changes is about a guy in his mid 30's in a deadend job who is about to get married to a beautiful women while being in love with the widow of his best friend. While this is going on in his life, his deadbeat dad comes back into the families life. They hadn't seen him in around 25 years. One of his brothers is in a punk rock band and clearly has issues with his dad. His other brother is a special needs person. I liked the way Tropper handled this issue. Very touching at times. This is the first Tropper book that has brought me to tears. He uses the English language well. He is laugh out loud funny...even when dealing with difficult topics. Some have critisized his writing for being a little too erotic at times, so don't read this book if that bothers you. He is a typical middle aged man. Anyway a really good book that I recommend to anyone. My favorite line from the book was, "The reason wisdom is meant to be imparted is because you acquire it only after it's too late to apply to yourself", I also enjoyed this one, "Consequences are a concept for the sober"...that one rang a little too true to me...The book can be summed up by this simple statement: "...there are better things than plans upon which to build your life."

Todd Carper How to talk to a Widower. One last thing before I go and the book of Joe are probably my three favorite.
