Summary
"An unfinished novel, a stolen car, a murdered pet and a failing marriage are just a few of the crises piling up like a logjam in this often hilarious story of bright promise gone awry. During a single hectic weekend, college professor Grady Tripp scrambles to gather together a life that has suddenly reeled out of control. Along for the ride are his gifted but troubled student, his eccentric editor, the married chancellor of his university who is pregnant with his child and his sultry student boarder."--Container notes
