I friend of mine recommended this debut novel, saying it was a good read. She was wrong--it was a great read! <BR/>Douglas Light has created a world that is funny, poignant, and thought provoking. Yeah, I know it sounds like a tall order, but he's done it.<BR/>Morris Bliss, the main character, is a sad-sack of a guy living with his father in New York City. It doesn't help matters that Morris is 35 years old, has no job, little to no money, and, at the start of the book, a brand new girlfriend way too young for him. He struggles through a long weekend, hoping to find a balance--and ultimately himself.<BR/>With a cast of vivid and funny character--N.J. I love, as well as Andrea, Morris' downstairs neighbor--this novel is a brisk read that left me exciting to find more of Light's work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
