Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A carpenter can fix the house. But how do you fix a broken home? In this award-winning memoir, Joe Cottonwood recalls a lifetime making repairs. Everybody needs a little help, a little warmth: the blonde in the hot tub—the dying billionaire—the wounded war vet—the rebel teen— the lonely French teacher—and the author himself. "Expertly crafted!"—Kirkus. "Gritty and entertaining."—Publishers Weekly. More

Review by: Paul Swearingen on Nov. 25, 2013 :
In this memoir/philosophical work, Cottonwood shows that not only can he mend almost anything on, under, in, or around a house, he can also mend errant souls, or at least nudge them in the right direction. This is a fabulous read for anyone who has fancied him or herself a Mr./Ms. Fixit and found that sometimes the problem is not so much the physical dwelling - it's the people who live there.
