Jonathan Tropper's novel The book of Joe dazzled critics and readers alike with its heartfelt blend of humor and pathos. Now Tropper brings all that--and more--to an irresistible new novel. In Everything changes, Tropper delivers a touching, wickedly funny new tale about love, loss, and the perils of a well-planned life. Everything changes: To all appearances, Zachary King is a man with luck on his side. A steady, well-paying job, a rent-free Manhattan apartment, and Hope, his stunning, blue-blooded fiancée: smart, sexy, and completely out of his league. But as the wedding day looms, Zack finds himself haunted by the memory of his best friend, Rael, killed in a car wreck two years earlier--and by his increasingly complicated feelings for Tamara, the beautiful widow Rael left behind. Then Norm--Zack's freewheeling, Viagra-popping father--resurfaces after a twenty-year absence, looking to make amends. Norm's overbearing, often outrageous efforts to reestablish ties with his sons infuriate Zack, and yet, despite twenty years of bad blood, he finds something compelling in his father's maniacal determination to transform his own life. Inspired by Norm, Zack boldly attempts to make some changes of his own, and the results are instantly calamitous. Soon fists are flying, his love life is a shambles, and his once carefully structured existence is spinning hopelessly out of control.
