The Trouble with Mr. Adams is a monster story about love's poisoned arrow. On the night volleyball coach Gary Adams leaves his wife, allegations of sexual misconduct surface regarding his sixteen-year old student. Gary defends his innocence - to his slighted wife, his reluctant union lawyer, and finally to the hesitant victim herself: his star volleyball player. But as the details of their relationship are revealed, troubling ambiguities become dangerous grey areas and Gary is forced to make an impossible choice. Finally, a changed, punished man, he makes one last bid to redeem himself. Grappling with such themes as abuse of power, intergenerational love, and the stagnation of marriage, The Trouble with Mr. Adams exposes the crippling disaster of the male mid-life crisis.
