A cocktail of comedy and melancholy, Harry, Revised is the hilarious and tender story of Harry Rent, a guilt-ridden, down-on-his-luck middle-aged widower, who tries to reinvent himself following his wife's untimely death.
His emotional journey takes him from solipsistic and outrageously misdirected fantasies about a twenty-two-year-old waitress at his local greasy spoon, to the tenuous beginnings of a personal transformation.
At once deeply moving and darkly comedic, Harry, Revised is an extraordinary novel, by a wonderful, emerging talent, about the measure of a man's worth.

'Harry Rent is of the same ilk as Walter Mitty and Rabbit Angstrom: deeply flawed, likable, and hilariously, touchingly memorable. Highly recommended for all fiction collections.' Library Journal
