Review

Funny, sad, and smart, "The Young Widower s Handbook" is a brilliant meditation on love, loss and loneliness. Part wacky road novel, part romantic comedy, Tom McAllister's debut novel flies along yet reaches deep. Stewart O'Nan, author of "West of Sunset" "The Young Widower s Handbook" is a stunning, clear-eyed examination of the complexity of grief. In McAllister's hands, this story of a man dealing with the loss of his wife takes on such depth and surprising humor that you can't help but give yourself over, heart and soul, to Hunter's journey. Kevin Wilson, author of "The Family Fang""

From the Back Cover

“You don't fall in love, like some people do, with the idea of being in love, but rather with her, specifically, and only with her . . .

. . . Throughout high school and college, you were an extra in the movies of other people’s lives, never better than the fourth most charismatic in any group; your role was to be the designated driver and to occasionally deliver a sarcastic one-liner that your friends could later repeat and claim as their own. And yet when you speak, she listens . . . You don’t fall in love with her because she’s like your mother, or because she’s the kind of woman you’re supposed to marry, but because there is no other choice but to fall in love . . . She wants to be married—married to you, specifically—and would you stop dragging your feet already, you’re twenty-four and it’s time to start growing up.” –HUNTER CADY, the hero of this funny, soulful love story

The Young Widower’s Handbook is a stunning, clear-eyed examination of the complexity of grief. This story takes on such depth and surprising humor that you can’t help but give yourself over, heart and soul.” —Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang
