Andrew is a 42-year-old single man caught up in a little white lie. While interviewing for his government job, he accidentally mentioned he had a wife and children. Now, several years later, his boss insists each member of the team hosts a dinner party and Andrew isn’t sure how long he can pull it off.
When a new employee, Peggy, joins the team, he realizes he is attracted to her but his social awkwardness makes it tricky. Andrew is likeable in that he doesn’t want to die alone, and his antics remind me a bit of George Costanza from “Seinfeld.” A fun read for those who liked “Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.”
