Summary
In the spirit of Jonathan Tropper and Kevin Wilson, Drew Perry takes aim at the two sides of a man's impending fatherhood'abject terror and unconditional love. Walter and Alice are expecting their first baby, but their timing is a bit off: Alice has quit her job, and Walter, once a successful loan officer, has been unexpectedly downsized. They've had to relocate to Florida to live rent-free in Alice's deceased aunt's condo, and when Alice's brother-in-law Mid offers Walter a job, he can't refuse. But the things he doesn't know'about Mid's murky dealings and the secret arrangements of his shady small-business empire'are beginning to unnerve him. Tensions escalate until the day Mid's mysteriously procured bright yellow Camaro becomes the object of a police chase'with Walter riding shotgun.'' ' Drew Perry paints a landscape of weird, strange, beautiful Florida and its inhabitants'all wholly original, hilarious, and utterly believable. And at the center is a wonderfully sensitive portrait of a father-to-be who is filled with trepidation, paralyzed by the thought of taking responsibility for another human life when he won't even take responsibility for his own. Kids These Days is a novel about a man who finally grows up'and just in time
