In his second book, novelist Michael Snyder introduces us to three very unusual and distinct voices all torn by tragedy:Willy Finneran, washed-up genre novelist with an espresso maker that just won’t die and a habit of avoiding conflict even if it means putting the truth on a sliding scale.Ozena Webb, single mother and Javatek’s top customer service representative. She spends every evening playing board games with her twelve-year-old son who is mentally crippled from an early childhood accident.Shaq, a small and scraggy homeless man with trauma-induced blank spots on his memory, trying to piece together the story of his life while assisting Father Joe at the Mercy Mission.As their stories intersect, the narrative vacillates between hope and naïveté, comic relief and postmodern ennui. Startling in its authenticity, this unforgettable novel reveals that no matter how far one has strayed from hope, there is always a way to return.

What People are Saying About This
Return Policy is a compelling, comic, and heartbreaking story that's full of hope. Michael Snyder's writing leaps off the page as he explores three tragic stories that lead to redemption in the most unlikely of places. His characters are human, his prose is refreshing, and honestly I couldn't help but smile as I read from one page to the next. Rob Stennett
