9780060778750: I Think She's Trying to Tell Me Something

Sportswriter Jack Byrnes is seeing lots of women...no matter how hard he tries not to.

See, a funny thing happened to Jack on the way to his thirtieth birthday. Everywhere he goes, he runs into a woman from his past: there's Mary Ann, whose random appearance in an Arizona airport started this mess; Amy, The One that Got Away, who has abandoned Boston for a fiancé and the Upper West Side; Connie, The Recent Ex who left-and reappeared-without any explanation; Danielle, the Freshman Fling turned bestselling chick lit author; and Nikki, Jack's first kiss, now happily residing in the West Village with the woman of her dreams.

Jack believes in a lot of things-his two best friends Bernie and Jeff, the Yankees, cold pizza to cure a hangover, the Yankees-but Fate has never been one of them. Still, this all can't be coincidence. Not when the Ghosts of Relationships Past show up just as Jack has met the perfect woman. The world must be trying to give Jack a signal, and maybe if he can read it right, this time he won't strike out.

About the Author:

An avid baseball fan but a mediocre player, Dan Graziano didn't play sports in college -- he wrote about them instead. Since it took up all of his time there anyway, he didn't have a lot of other options than to make a career of it. Within two years of graduation he was a full-time baseball writer -- a job that has taken him all over this country and all over the world. Still, no matter how many times he had deep-dish pizza in Chicago, coffee in Seattle, or clam chowder in Boston, there was never a place like New York. It was when he moved to New York that his career took off, that he really felt at home, and where he started his family, finally and thankfully putting all of the lunacy of the single-guy life behind him. A life on the road, working nights, weekends, and holidays, somehow ended up leading to a very happy, nicely peaceful home life. He's now gone suburban and moved to New Jersey, where he lives with his wife and son, and is not ever haunted by relationship ghosts.

From Publishers Weekly:

This fumbling first novel proposes to enlighten the reader with the guy's take on modern romance. Baseball writer Jack Byrnes has fallen in love many times, amassing a bevy of "relationship ghosts" who strike on the cusp of his 30th birthday with a barrage of eerie sightings and chance encounters. From his first kiss—now a happy lesbian—to his live-in ex, to the college flame who skewers him in her bestselling novel, Jack's unwieldy romantic past crowds his life like a kudzu vine, threatening to siphon his energy from two new girls he's met cute in Manhattan. He starts to wonder if fate hasn't orchestrated this mess to teach him some profound love lesson. His colorful snippets about covering the Yankees hint at a better future novel, but the rest of the book reads like one rambling road map of both Manhattan and his mind, marked with booze-fueled rap sessions with his buddies. Graziano aims for the studied cool and quirky charm of Hornby's High Fidelity, but he's thwarted by an anticlimactic plot that feels as random as Jack's run-ins.
