Hard-working family man Henry Robinson is told that he’s dying of “failure” in this offbeat and richly layered story of Middle America gone awry. Henry’s heartbreaking and exhausting life is turned upside down as he struggles to stay right side up. Henry befriends, Jade, a lovely and wise 20 year-old from the generation of The 1975. Together they share very real and human moments, conversations, and reflections. The story’s other central character is another strong female, Henry’s wife Mara. Ultimately, it’s a story about the modern human experience—our struggles with ourselves and with each other. Readers previewing the novelette commented that it was easy to read and they were eager to see what would happen next. “A Good Man Henry” is perhaps better compared to an offbeat movie than labeling it in literary terms–though some readers commented that the work reminded them of magical realism. At about 25,000 words, it reads easily as a short novel or long short story. Please make some popcorn and enjoy reading "A Good Man Henry." Contains adult language and adult themes.
