Foolscap: Or, The Stages of Love by Michael Malone

Professor Theo Ryan lives a quiet life teaching drama at Cavendish University in North Carolina, but everything gets turned upside down when he meets Ford Rexford-America's best-known playwright. Ford is the most talented and the most impossible man Theo has ever met. And Ford's genius, his reckless romanticism, and his fearless love of life profoundly influence the reticent scholar.

When Ford discovers that Theo has written a play, a madcap journey begins that pushes the young recluse out of the wings onto the bright, bustling stages of life and love. There he finds himself playing roles he never would have thought possible. In his most hilarious book since Handling Sin, Michael Malone has created a story as wildly funny as it is profoundly wise.

I now have a new favorite writer. Foolscape is the first book of Michael Malone's that I have read,and if the rest are anything like it, I will have a delightful time exploring them, also.

This novel had a great opening of events and character progression, but soon found it fizzle as I followed the narrator with out his right hand man. Also the tone seemed to change in an awkward way that I felt didn't quite fit. It took me quite awhile to finish this book as I found myself losing touch with the characters and inevitably feigning interest.
