Toby has it all - wealth, fame, a beautiful girlfriend, his own TV show, 'Toby A Gentleman'. He is a man's Emily Post; he promotes manners and fashion to the modern man.
Of course, it all falls apart and he loses everything: his condo, his BMW, and his handmade suits are lost one by one through a series of unfortunate events. His father is suffering from some mysterious apparently mental ailment, his mother is a bit of a harpy, his friends ignore and humiliate him. And above it all, he is unexpectedly left to care for a 3 year old boy.
Wait a minute...does this sound like a Hugh Grant movie? Has Todd Babiak been commisserating with Nick Hornby? And why are all the women so unlikeable?
The writing is witty, satirical, humourous. Oh, darn, I had picked out a couple of good sample passages from the novel, but returned it to the library too soon. Someone will find my sticky notes and wonder why they're there. Bottom line, I had a good time reading this book and giggling. ( )
