Laid low by divorce-the result of an endless stream of poor choices-Sam decides it's time he met his dad. But his quest to meet the men and discover the truth does more than just shake up the five likely suspects-it pretty much napalms the lives of everyone he meets.

"Tim Sandlin's stuff is as tight and funny as anyone doing this comedy novel thing." - Christopher Moore
