Summary

"A cocktail of comedy and melancholy, Harry, Revised is the hilarious and tender story of Harry Rent, a guilt-ridden, down-on-his-luck middle-aged widower, who tries to reinvent himself following his wifes untimely death. His emotional journey takes him from his own solipsistic and outrageously misdirected fantasies about a twenty-two-year-old waitress at his local greasy spoon, to the tenuous beginnings of an actual, personal transformation. At once deeply moving and darkly comedic, Harry, Revised is an extraordinary novel about the measure of a man's worth by a wonderful, emerging talent.A cocktail of comedy and melancholy, Harry, Revised is the hilarious and tender story of Harry Rent, a guilt-ridden, down-on-his-luck middle-aged widower, who tries to reinvent himself following his wifes untimely death.
