This classic comic novel about a midlife man whose life is spiraling out of control is a "heartbreaking delight . . . Nothing less than a joy" (The Washington Post Book World).
Screenwriter Harry Towns, a bicoastal playboy with a broken marriage and a child he rarely sees, has been reveling in the freewheeling atmosphere of the early 1970s. But when cracks start to appear in his perfectly constructed life, he has no option but to pick up the scattered pieces of his past and begin anew.
From a New York Times–bestselling author and veteran Hollywood screenwriter, About Harry Towns is both a portrait of a particular era and a timeless look at the wrong turns that make up a life—featuring " a character unique, haunting, and completely memorable" (The Washington Post Book World).
"Brilliant." —The New York Times Book Review
