Oh no! He's losing it.
Wake-up call required.
Coulda. Woulda. Shoulda.
Marvin Baines seemingly has it all: a loving family and a great job. He is about to turn forty, and just like that, the realization hits him--his own mortality is straight up the road. That's not his only problem. Suddenly he is unable to distinguish fantasy from reality, and his often quirky decision-making causes his whole life to begin to unravel. All he wants is an escape from his humdrum life. What he gets is something quite unexpected.
The humour is well-judged and never forced, and overall The Survival of Marvin Baines is a highly recommended tale of mid-life dysfunction." - Indie Book Spot
"This book will stick with you like a healthy meal leaving you feeling pleased with yourself for eating, savoring, and thinking..." - Karen Luellen. author
From the author of the rollicking romp THE FAMOUS UNION.
So glad I read it.
The Survival of Marvin Baines kept me up until almost midnight the first night I started reading. It was really that good. I have to say that I didn't see much humor in the story, but it was still a great read. The ending was very heartwarming and though it wasn't a book I would have normally picked up and read, I'm so glad I read it.
