His life begins to unravel as quickly as his unfinished novel, until the two finally begin to intertwine. Soon, his real-life friends and family begin to intermix with his characters.
Yuvi travels from his suburban-Atlanta home to the North Carolina mountains of his father's childhood, to several hospital waiting rooms in a struggle to save himself, his marriage, his novel, and also the life of his brother-in-law and end war in the Middle East (if he has time).

I'm impressed by this author's ability to express difficult emotions
with humor. For me, it makes it easier to tolerate the difficulty of
thinking about---and feeling---some of what we---and the author---all go
through. He says some of the stuff you're not supposed to say, talking
about difficult emotions about planning a child or being in a
relationship. It's not just humor that carries this book, though---it's
also beautiful language. There's a lot to love about this book---I can't
wait for the Brilliant (and angstful!) sequel!
