About this title:


Remember Danny Deck? He was the hero of ALL MY FRIENDS ARE GOING TO BE STRANGERS, who endeared himself with his multiple neuroses. Enough of them remain for us to recognize him in SOME CAN WHISTLE, but Danny, predictably, has changed.

Now middle-aged and reclusive, Danny has returned home to his native Texas. He writes for a living, but does so from a distance. In fact the answering machine is about as close as he cares to come to people.

Danny's seclusion comes to an end with a call from T.R., the daughter he has never seen. That call changes Danny's life and the lives of everyone around him, including T.R. herself.

"A father-daughter love story that underscores the special relationship that exists between male pregenitors and their baby girls." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

Product Description: Danny Deck is a middle-aged Texan who has made his fortune in the TV business and returned home to a quiet and eccentric way of life. Then comes a call from TR, the daughter he has never seen. She brings into his life her two children and two lovers. This is the story of the conflicts that ensue.
