9780061992322: You Don't Love This Man: A Novel

You Don't Love This Man is an exquisite puzzle....Which is more gorgeous, more satisfying here, the story itself, or the language DeWeese uses to tell it?” —Mary Rechner, author of Nine Simple Patterns for Complicated Women

Set in the Pacific Northwest, Dan Deweese’s debut novel delivers a witty, heartfelt, and keenly observed day-in-the-life of one father of the bride, casting luminous insight into marriage, fatherhood, and bank robbery. Readers of Benjamin Kunkel, Joshua Ferris, and Kevin Wilson, as well as fans of contemporary American masters like Philip Roth and Tobias Wolff, will be enthralled by Deweese’s evocative, literary exploration of an everyman protagonist’s quiet struggles and tender joys on one of the most monumental days in his life.

From the Back Cover:

A novel about fatherhood, marriage . . . and bank robbery.

On the morning of his daughter Miranda's wedding, Paul learns that the bank he manages has been robbed—apparently by the same man who robbed it twenty-five years before. As if that weren't enough, Miranda, who is set to marry Paul's former best friend—a man twice her age—seems to have gone missing.

Struggling to reconcile his little girl with the grown woman he's about to walk down the aisle (if he can find her), to accept his onetime peer as his future son-in-law, and to comprehend the strange coincidence of being robbed by the same man two decades apart, Paul takes stock of everything leading up to this moment—as he attempts to navigate the day's many surprises while questioning the motives and choices of those around him.

About the Author:

Dan DeWeese teaches writing at Portland State University. His fiction has appeared in Tin House, New England Review, Washington Square, and other publications. In 2009, he created Propeller, an art, film, and literature quarterly magazine, for which he serves as editor in chief.
