Synopsis: In September 2000, Brendan Halpin discovered that his thirty-two-year-old wife had stage four breast cancer. On October 7, he sat down to begin writing about what happens to a man who fears that his best friend might leave him forever.

While his wife’s condition is always in his thoughts, Halpin’s memoir focuses more on the day-to-day, moment-to-moment concerns of a young English teacher forced into the role of temporary single parent to his young daughter, forced to test his relationship with his wife, and forced to face his own fears.

It Takes a Worried Man brilliantly skewers everyone from medical professionals to family members and details how work, pop music, and movies about flesh-eating zombies helped to save Halpin’s sanity. His rants about popular culture, God, and children’s birthday parties add levity and a fast pace to the narrative.

From the Back Cover: “Traumatic, touching, and shockingly funny. Bottom line: Man at his best.” —People

“Raw, undisciplined, and frequently very funny.”
Boston Sunday Globe

“Comic, moving, profane, honest, and thought-provoking . . . an irreverent, heartbreaking, dumbfoundingly funny book about love, fear, and perseverance.”
The Arizona Republic
