Elevating Overman is a funny and painful story of redemption that explores the complex ramifications of what it means to get a second chance. The novel follows the journey of Ira Overman, veteran of multiple botched careers and a singularly botched marriage, as he makes one last attempt to rise above the guilt, weakness, and self-hatred that have been hard-wired into his soul since birth. Through an unlikely side effect from a seemingly routine surgery, Overman suddenly finds himself trying to reconcile newfound powers with the man he used to be, determined not to repeat the poor choices of his past. Overman succeeds at righting some of his former wrongs, fails miserably at others, but, most importantly, gains a small yet significant window into a life that matters.

Awesome! Was sent an advanced review copy of this novel and couldn't put it down. Hilarious from start to finish, the journey of Ira Overman illuminates the human experience on a much deeper level as it negotiates the rocky path to empowerment. If you're a fan of Philip Roth or Woody Allen, you will love this book!
