Dense, turgid, and essentially unreadable tale of a 40-something divorcee trying to juggle a stalled real estate career, a tottering relationship with his girlfriend, and the needs of his troubled adolescent son over a long holiday weekend. Took me 3 days to get through the first 150 pages, at which point I decided I really didn't care.
