Growing Old is NOT for Sissies*

 Liam Pennywell has been downsized from his job. (not fires, you understand - downsized.) So he decides to downsize his whole life. He  didn't plan on getting mugged and ending up in the hospital.  He thought his life was empty before, now he can't even remember how he  ended up in the hospital.  Looking to fill in those hours, he may just fill in the life he's still living.

 "Tyler's gift is to make the reader empathize with this flawed but decent man, and to marvel at how this determinedly low-key,  plainspoken novelist achieves miracles of insight and understanding."  from Publishers Weekly Reviews.
