Synopsis

Sam Holland is a pen-for-hire, with nonfiction titles such as Traveling with Your Pet and An Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Pro Football to his name—or rather his pseudonym, John Retcliffe. But when his latest project, Visitors from Above, takes off, Sam is ill-equipped to handle this sudden fame: His marriage is in trouble and, as a result, his teenage son runs away. As he tours the country in support of his book, he must endeavor to put back the pieces of his broken life. At turns funny and moving, Men in Black is Spencer’s insightful take on the pitfalls of fame, and a poignant story of familial love. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Scott Spencer, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
