We're All Damaged by Matthew Norman
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This was a Kindle First Reads choice. Andy Carter is devastated when his wife decides to divorce him. He runs away to NYC but is forced to return to his hometown of Omaha, NE a year later when his grandfather goes into hospice. Andy is a wreck, and he's done a good job of destroying his job and his relationships with his friends and family. His time in Omaha becomes a time of coming to terms with his losses and figuring out how to begin again. Andy's story is sometimes humorous, often depressing, but ultimately hopeful. I didn't really connect with the book, but I think that was more a generational and maybe gender disconnect than a problem with the writing.
