Hank Meyerson isn't the whiny sort of mama's boy. He's more the wry, shaggy, chubby sort an over-thinker, a ranter, and sometimes a crier. He adores Emily Dickinson. He kibitzes. He has the audacity to fall in love with his brother's wife.
Repercussions of a tryst kick-start a story of love, loss, and, ultimately, redemption. Traversing from Minneapolis to Montana to the fateful shallows of the St. Croix River, Hank's story waltzes toward tragedy with dazzling wit, affecting insight, and raw ruminations on everything from duck jokes and the toy industry to art, atonement, and our great human frailty.
Inaugural winner of the Parthenon Prize for Fiction, The Annunciations of Hank Meyerson, Mama's Boy and Scholar establishes Scott Muskin as a truly original and exciting new voice in contemporary fiction.
