As New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Fuller put it, "Exposing the belly of the male beast is a brave thing to do. Brian Sweany writes like an American Martin Amis." In his tragicomic debut-equal parts dark comedy, nostalgia trip, and rousing tale of redemption-manchild and small-town Indiana resident Hank Fitzpatrick stumbles through and beyond adolescence in the late 1980s. Hypersexual, drunk, stoned, occasionally Catholic, accidentally well-intentioned-Hank doesn't know it yet, but his life is about to implode in spectacular fashion.
