Summary
"In Flip Mellis's recent past he had, by his own assessment, his feet planted squarely on terra firma. As a husband and father he was a consistent breadwinner. As a business professional, he was a go-getter. For twenty years he did all that was expected of him, if not much more. But a job loss in his middle years, in the midst of a national economic crisis, knocked Flip squarely on his big, soft ass where he has been wallowing for nearly a year. Over the course of one hectic week, replete with a cast of colorful characters, Flip is forced by circumstances of his own invention to finally get his life headed in the right direction"-- ßc Provided by pu
Summary
Overweight and weak-willed, Flip Mellis has a self-fulfilling fatalism which leads him to stumble through each day, hoping that he can get a job, mend his marriage and rebuild his life. But in the space of a week, his encounters with characters from American small-town life get in the way of Flip's well-meaning attempts to reform himself
