Overview

When a film producer arrives at the California Heritage Gallery to view Hack's paintings, he's accompanied by the artist's childhood sweetheart, a woman he hasn't seen in twenty years except in dreams, where she appears almost nightly, a heavenly image of beauty and light. Now Hack is overwhelmed with desire and despair, for she's the trophy wife of a rich man. What could she possibly see in a downtrodden, besotted artist? So, in a state of love struck dementia, he hatches an outlandish scheme to win her back: fake his own death, thereby driving up the value of his portfolio, and then under cover, continue to produce "undiscovered" work, get rich,and one day return to claim his true love, when they'll ride "Fat Boys" together into the sunset to live happily ever after. Even a loser can get lucky sometimes.

Editorial Reviews

Book Back - Frank Turner Hollen
“I laughed my ass off, and then at times stopped and felt a sadness, almost
like I was actually Henry Griffin, haunted by the ghost of a childhood girlfriend,
left wondering how perfect life could have been... I can’t stop thinking about the
book, and that’s the only real compliment one writer can give another.”
— Frank Turner Hollon, author of "Life Is a Strange Place," adapted
as the motion picture "Barry Munday."
Book Back - Stan Chervin
"Harrison creates a topsy-turvy carousel of disguises,
mistaken identities, lies, half-truths, misunderstood motivations, and perhaps
even a fable (in the form of a quasi-mythic homeless man) then sets it spinning
until it ensnares all of the characters who inhabit the Bay Area’s “see-or-be-seen art scene. Reading HACK is like a weekend getaway in Marin County” —Golden Globe nominee Stan Chervin, screenwriter of "Moneyball"
