What Smiled at Him

What Smiled At HimOne night far from home, a mix of alcohol, recklessness and coincidence reunite childhood friends Lynn and Marv with Caroline, the longtime object of their desires. A few weeks later, Caroline is arrested and charged with murdering her husband and infant son.

The murder pursues the friends through their searches for love, stabs at success and self-destructive lapses, in an unorthodox, contemporary mystery in which the protagonists have the means to solve a mystery. The question is: Will they bother?

What people are saying about What Smiled at Him:

“The novel has an angry edge to it, recalling the spirit of the Beats. Many of the peripheral characters speak like prophets… Marv and Lynn are just as self-aware as their supporting cast, and their abundance of wisdom sometimes stretches believability; it’s tempered, however, by the flaw of their continually self-destructive behavior. Watching them ignore their better instincts… makes the characters more endearing.”

-Kirkus Reviews

“‘What Smiled at Him’ manages to be somber, colorful, and often guffaw-out-loud funny. It reads fast but is loaded with trenchant observations on modern relationships, growing up, and happiness that will give the reader pause.”

-Kevin Kosar, author of Whiskey: A Global History
