About this product
- DescriptionA New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice Milo Burke--husband, father, development officer at a third-tier university--has just joined the burgeoning class of the newly unemployed. Grasping after odd jobs to support his wife and child, Milo is relieved to get ather chance from his former boss. All he has to do is reel in a potential dor who, mysteriously, has requested Milo's involvement.
