Walter and Alice are expecting their first baby, but their timing is a bit off: Alice has quit her job, and Walter, once a successful loan officer, has been unexpectedly downsized.

They ve had to relocate to Florida to live rent-free in Alice s deceased aunt s condo, and when Alice s brother-in-law Mid offers Walter a job, he can t refuse. But the things he doesn t know about Mid s murky dealings and the secret arrangements of his shady small-business empire are beginning to unnerve him. Tensions escalate until the day Mid s mysteriously procured bright yellow Camaro becomes the object of a police chase with Walter riding shotgun.Drew Perry paints a landscape of weird, strange, beautiful Florida and its inhabitants all wholly original, hilarious, and utterly believable.

And at the center is a wonderfully sensitive portrait of a father-to-be who is filled with trepidation, paralyzed by the thought of taking responsibility for another human life when he won t even take responsibility for his own. Kids These Days is a novel about a man who finally grows up and just in time.Praise for This Is Just Exactly Like You:A richly imagined, beautifully written, and completely absorbing work of fiction.

I found myself spellbound . . . What a fine, fine book. Tim O Brien, winner of the National Book Award and author of The Things They CarriedAs convincingly as Perry swift-paddles the perilous waters of love, he just as ably limns male camaraderie in all of its bantering rawness and fatherly parenting.
