Straight man - Richard RussoDirections & Maps
Turning 50, Hank Devereaux, Jr. is suffering through a mid-life crisis he has yet to acknowledge. Hank, interim chairman of the English department of a less than prestigious college in Pennsylvania, believes that his secretary writes better fiction than he does. Buried beneath a pile of bizarre and amusing problems, Hank tries to reconcile troubles at the university and in his personal relationships. This is a laugh-out-loud novel written with wit, poignancy and compassion by one of the master storytellers of our time.
