Neil GenzlingerAlan Zweibel seems to sense this in The Other Shulman, his comic midlife-crisis novel about a chunky fellow who decides to run the New York City Marathon, and he employs all kinds of tricks to keep you from noticing that his Shulman is a 251-pound cliché. Remarkably, he largely succeeds, thanks to a deft humorous touch. Shulman himself may not hold any surprises, but Zweibel's prose is full of them.
