A hapless 20's young adult flees NY City to Cape Cod, leaving girl friend and chaos behind. Living in his sisters crummy condo, he bonds with her ex-husband, and their toddler son. He meets an odd assortment along the way.

At the the end he looks like he might be finding himself. Minor characters seem to be better drawn and more sympathetic than the leads. I liked the writing and the author's eye for well drawn detail. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"It's October 1996 in Cape Cod. Our hero - a narrator so ordinary that he remains nameless - is a talented but floundering musician turned waiter who has hightailed it out of a volatile day-old marriage in New York and further into his own ever-deepening mess. With no job, no apartment, no wife, and a six-pack of beer, he's looking for a clean slate. For years he's been dodging life's extremes, stuck somewhere between responsibility and freedom, love and obsession, obligation and desire, apathy and success. Now he's seeking sanctuary at the home his sister abandoned along with her marriage, so that he can sort out something in his life - what, he's not quite sure."."Looking for distraction from his memories of the hot-blooded Jocelyn, who is still refusing to return his calls, he agrees to look after his two-year-old nephew. Together, the unlikely pair catch the attention of Marie, a young woman in the neighborhood with a troubled past of her own. As they get to know each other, our hero ventures into unknown territory, where his affection for a damaged kindred spirit just might shock him awake and shake him to the core."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
