What Smiled at Him

Posted on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 | No Comments

What Smiled at Him is the story of childhood friends Lynn and Marv with Caroline, the longtime object of their desires. When Caroline is charged with murdering her husband and son, the murder pursues the friends through their searches for love, stabs at success and self-destructive lapses, in an unorthodox, contemporary mystery. "The novel has an angry edge to it, recalling the spirit of the Beats. Many of the peripheral characters speak like prophets... Marv and Lynn are just as self-aware as their supporting cast, and their abundance of wisdom sometimes stretches believability; it's tempered, however, by the flaw of their continually self-destructive behavior. Watching them ignore their better instincts... makes the characters more endearing." -Kirkus Reviews "What Smiled at Him' manages to be somber, colorful, and often guffaw-out-loud funny. It reads fast but is loaded with trenchant observations on modern relationships, growing up, and happiness that will give the reader pause." -Kevin Kosar, author of Whiskey: A Global History
