"Frank Bascombe returns (The Sportswriter and Independence Day featured him in earlier novels) and faces a difficult Thanksgiving day in his fifty-fifth year. Wry, wise, funny, beautifully written and structured, I wanted to reread this as soon as I finished but felt impelled to pass it on to other readers. A masterpiece." --Mary Muller, Market Block Books, Troy, NY
