Men in black: a novelUser Review - Book Verdict
Sam Holland's life is mired in failure. Constantly aware of his inadequacies as a son, husband, father, and writer, he is made even more uneasy by a quirky success. His book on UFOs, written for quick money, suddenly propels him onto the best-sellers lists. Ironically, the status he has longed for is now an embarrassment. As he is pulled into a semicelebrity world of book tours and publicity, his family comes apart. His runaway son winds up cavorting with petty criminals, his wife suffers from her own estrangements, and his former lover is pregnant. There is a good story buried beneath the jumbled emotions here, but it never quite surfaces. Spencer's previous novels include Secret Anniversaries (LJ 5/1/90).
