Publisher Description

"Wild , wonderful, and wickedly funny...Highly recommended." - Library Journal
One of five men could be Sam Callahan's father. Is knowing the truth worth the havoc he'll cause trying to find out?

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.

A comic novel of dysfunctional family and raucous debauchery, fans of Nick Hornby, Jack Kerouac, Tom Robbins, Larry McMurtry, Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut, Carl Hiaasen will appreciate Sandlin's humor and Sam's journey.

"one of the funniest writers alive."

"I am a huge fan of Nick Hornby and Richard Russo, and Tim Sandlin belongs in their club."

"Besides being hilarious and lewd (a very good start), the novel is quite touching."

"Sandlin's narrative voice combines the absurdity of Tom Robbins, the pithy social observation of Douglas Coupland, the male sexual wanderlust of Phillip Roth."

"Rollicking raunchy raucous debaucherous dysfunctional good time fun-- with genuine heart and emotion mixed in for good measure"

"absolutely hysterical and touching. I haven't looked at treadmills the same way since!"
