Meet Garrett: 30-year-old computer geek, master of irrational optimism, and serial-kisser of women who (it turns out) don't like him that way. After three blurry years of business travel and inadvertent celibacy, Garrett is so ready for a serious relationship that he's a little bit dangerous. Inspired by a romantic near-miss on a flight home to Seattle, Garrett hurls himself into the deep end of the dating pool, determined to find happiness no matter how miserable it makes him. Too bad the women he falls for don't share his sense of urgency: Froot Loop sculptress April worries she's warping his personality, cynical attorney Corinne suspects he likes her too much, and upstairs neighbor Meryl just wants to be friends. Garrett refuses to give up though... well, at least until he does. But sometimes, after you've finally abandoned hope, you find that someone else hasn't given up on you. "With wit, heart and intelligence, Derek Gentry's Here Comes Your Man reminds readers that you never know what is around the next corner or on the next page. Those who enjoy Nick Hornby will devour this book." -Eileen Cook, author of Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood
