About this title:

Synopsis: Joe Goffman's sizzling first novel - and a blockbuster on screen - has savaged almost every reputation in Bush Falls. Having turned his back firmly on the town he left seventeen years ago, the indignant cries of former neighbours, friends and family members - not to mention the class action slander suit - have never fazed Joe in the least. Until now. A family emergency summons him back to Bush Falls, where, mere minute after his arrival, he falls victim to the wrath of the townsfolk: milk-shakes thrown in his face, copies of his novel pelting his house, violent threats to blow up his shiny new Mercedes. But the more Bush Falls resents Joe, the more it becomes obvious that Joe desperately needs Bush Falls. As he walks along the familiar streets, memories return that he had long ago though purged by his writing. One year especially, 1986, when Joe lost his best friend and his innocence to passion, betrayal and tragedy, haunts him with a vengeance. Now, almost two 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.

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.
