9780099461234: Bush Falls

Joe Goffman's vicious first novel has savaged the reputation of Bush Falls. When a family emergency summons him back to the town he left 17 years ago, he's not surprised at the welcome he receives: milk-shakes thrown in his face, copies of his novel pelting his house and violent threats to blow up his shiny new Mercedes. But the more Bush Falls resents Joe, the more it becomes obvious that Joe cannot turn his back on Bush Falls. As he walks along the familiar streets, memories return to haunt him with a vengeance - about a secret love affair, an old friendship and a tragic death. Now, decades later, Joe has to face his past without resorting to his pen. And with the help of some very old friends, he might just be able to learn something - if he manages to survive his homecoming. At once hilarious and bittersweet, Bush Falls is a tale of the double-edged rewards of fame, revenge and redemption as a writer takes on a village and the ghosts of his past.

From the Inside Flap:

Right after high school, Joe Goffman left sleepy Bush Falls, Conneticut and never looked back. Then he wrote a novel savaging everything in town, a novel that became a national bestseller and a huge hit movie. Fifteen years later, Joe is struggling to avoid the sophomore slump with his next novel when he gets a call: his father's had a stroke, so it's back to Bush Falls for the town's most famous pariah. His brother avoids him, his former classmates beat him up, and the members of the book club just hurl their copies of Bush Falls at his house. But with the help of some old friends, Joe discovers that coming home isn't all bad?and that maybe the best things in life are second chances.

Fans of Nick Hornby and Jennifer Weiner will love this book, by turns howlingly funny, fiercely intelligent, and achingly poignant. As evidenced by The Book of Joe's success in both the foreign and movie markets, Jonathan Tropper has created a compelling, incredibly resonant story.
From the Hardcover edition.
