An Ambulance is on the Way
Format: Paperback, 194 pages,
Available (Published: January 2008)
Sharp, bittersweet tales of middle-aged American men, in hot water with their women, with their sweet or streetwise kids, with their own consciences.
This is about the American husband and father: well meaning but caught out, horny but going to seed, adrift on dreams and fancies and looking for a break. Men in trouble.
"Entertaining… Taut and funny" - The Boston Globe
"Sublime… it might be considered a companion volume to the movie 'Sideways'" - Seattle Weekly
"Tantalising… his writing engages on every page with disarming intelligence and imagination." - Elle
