A Howl for Mayflower
After Mayflower Bryant corners aging widower Tobias Seltzer in the basement laundry of the Coronado and persuades him to dance with her in his skivvies, he discovers that all problems can't be solved by reading books. Sometimes, the only solution is life itself. Dan Gilmore's debut novel takes a darkly humorous, painfully honest look at this last-minute journey toward love and self-discovery.
