"This riveting, hilarious, and deeply moving novel looks at two people who live on the margins of our society. Artie is a petty thief, a would-be con man, and when he sees Jolene Jello wrestling at a dive bar, he thinks he's found a meal ticket.
Jolene is a single mother struggling to find a way to support her sick child. In Artie, she sees the hope of a chance to provide a father figure for her son, and a normal family life for herself.
Against all odds, Artie and Jolene begin to develop a deep love for each other. But times are tough, and their luck is bad. They come up with a plan that might help them escape the poverty that is closing in around them—or it might destroy any chance they have at true love.
Gritty and unsentimental, Time Sharing depicts the lives of Artie and Jolene with sympathy and humor. The two lovers are so real, so unforgettable, you will be haunted by them the rest of your life."
