Synopsis: Baggage Check
“An entertaining novel about three men on a journey to find the right woman,” says Ebony Magazine.
“Provocative, passionate, invigorating and liberating,” are how others describe Baggage Check—the “must read” novel with the power to transform written by the “must read” author, Curtis Bunn.
Take three thirty-something, financially secure, handsome guys who have been lifelong friends and are used to having relationships on their terms—in other words “it’s their way or the highway” a.k.a. “take it or leave it.”
As close friends, Julian Morgan, Greg Gibson, and Larry Thompson demonstrate honesty, trust, and unconditional support for each other. But strangely enough, they don’t bring these same qualities to the table when dealing with women. The question becomes “why?” And the answer is because they need a “Baggage Check.”
Julian Morgan wants relationships that are “convenient.” Greg Gibson loves his business and money first and foremost. And Larry Thompson is Mr. Hit and Run. After a series of relationship mishaps, they do a Baggage Check on themselves—unfortunately later rather than sooner. They realize that they cannot be with Ms. Right if they continue to be Mr. Wrong and so the pursuit begins.
In the end, the fellas wind up on “maturation highway” and “redemption road” but that’s only after a long and very bumpy journey. Bunn is your personal escort who takes you through their tragedy and triumph. His “flip the script” literary style reveals the serious side of “funny” and the funny side of “serious.”
In his debut novel, Curtis Bunn, who is an award-winning sports journalist for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, has penned the first relationship novel that deals specifically with a factor that impacts on many relationships—Baggage.
From the Inside Flap: Meet three guys in need of a baggage check (see backcover for definition): Julian Jackson (professor) on the double standard men enjoy in relationships—“They say what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Well, not for this gander.” Greg Gibson (bookstore owner) on financial settlements resulting from divorce—“Half? She ain’t sell one book and she’s going to get Half? Larry Thompson (actor) on being involved with just one woman—“Monogamy? What’s that—a disease?
While all relationship books deal with the hang-ups people bring into relationships, award winning sports journalist Curtis Bunn’s debut novel is devoted entirely to this topic. Baggage Check is about three life-long “thirty-something” men who demonstrate true commitment to each other but come up short when dealing with the women in their lives because—they (the men) have baggage.
We meet Julian Jackson getting his “cheat” on with . . . (see opening chapter). He’s supposed to be committed.
Greg Gibson is engaged. His marriage is set for “whenever” or “no time soon” which ever comes last.
And Larry Thompson is a real-life “He’s gotta have it,” kinda guy. Enough said.
Curtis Bunn’s Baggage Check is a concoction of wit and humor, surprise and suspense, and hope and happiness. Larry Thompson goes from “Larry Loves Larry” to “Larry Loves the Lord.” Greg Gibson goes from “Money” to “Matrimony.” And Julian Jackson goes from “I” and “Me” to “Us” and “We.”
Published by Upstream and backed by AUDACITY The Literary Consortium, Baggage Check is the relationship genre’s first must-read novel written by the first must-read author—Curtis Bunn.
