'Honest, vulnerable, hilarious, and profoundly human' Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones and the Six
Daniel Mayrock's life is at a crossroads. He knows the following to be true:
1. He loves his wife Jill . . . more than anything.
2. He only regrets quitting his job and opening a bookshop a little (maybe more than a little).
3. Jill is ready to have a baby.
4. The bookshop isn't doing well.
5. Dan hasn't told Jill about their financial trouble.
6. Then Jill gets pregnant.
What are the lengths Dan will go to, and the risks he will take, to save his family? But he doesn't just want to save his failing bookstore and his family's finances:
1. Dan wants to do something special.
2. He's a man who is tired of feeling ordinary.
3. He's sick of feeling like a failure.
4. He doesn't want to live in the shadow of his wife's deceased first husband.
Dan is also an obsessive list maker; his story unfolds entirely in his lists, which are brimming with his hilarious sense of humour, unique world-view and deeply personal thoughts. When read in full, his lists paint a picture of a man struggling, a man who has reached a point where he's willing to do anything for the love (and soon-to-be new love) of his life.
