Overview

mul•li•gan - n. A golf shot not tallied against the score, granted in informal play after a poor shot especially from the tee.

Nate Jorgenson, winner of the 2004 Benjamin Franklin Award for Best New Voice in Fiction for his novel Waiting for White Horses, tells the story of a frustrated dentist's search for redemption in his second novel, The Mulligan.

From the outside, it seems Joe Mix should be happy. He's got a healthy family, a successful practice, and plenty of time for sports cars and leisurely golfing at the country club. But lately the little things have been getting to him, and a new emptiness seems to be overtaking his life.

Convinced he's feeling something much deeper than a textbook midlife crisis, Joe Mix loads his truck with two packed duffel bags and his dog and calls the office to tell his receptionist he's not coming to work-ever again. In the spirit of Updike's Rabbit, Run, The Mulligan relates Joe Mix's journey with clarity and poignancy, appealing to that part in all of us that wonders what it would be like to get a do-over-to walk away from the mindless day-to-day life in which we've entrenched ourselves to seek something better.

    The best novel by far for this writer.

    the midlife problem of the main character are well developed. The fly fishing segments are true to form and the golf in Montana is hilareous.

    Great Summer Read

    My librarian recommended this book to me and I was not disappointed. Jorgenson's style is such that the characters and locations seem to jump right off the page. The story of making your own way for a second time is full of sorrow and hope and gives an insightful look into the human experience and what it means to be happy. This book is definitely worth a read.

    Good, not great book

    A simple, easy read. Too many references to Lonesome Dove.

    A must read

    The Mulligan is one of my favorite books of the year. Everyone imagines what it would be like to call in sick at work...permanently. Joe Mix, the main character actually does just that. We get to go along on his journey, as he rediscovers HIMSELF. The Mulligan is filled with memorable characters and plot, WOW. I can hardly wait to see what Nathan Jorgenson has in store for us in his next book.
