Hard-working family man Henry Robinson is told that he’:s dying of “:failure”: in this offbeat and richly layered story of Middle America gone awry. Henry’:s heartbreaking and exhausting life is turned upside down as he struggles to stay right side up. Henry befriends, Jade, a lovely and wise 20 year-old from the generation of The 1975. Together they share very real and human moments, conversations, and reflections. The story’:s other central character is another strong female, Henry’:s wife Mara. Ultimately, it’:s a story about the modern human experience—:our struggles with ourselves and with each other. Readers previewing the novelette commented that it was easy to read and they were eager to see what would happen next. “:A Good Man Henry”: is perhaps better compared to an offbeat movie than labeling it in literary terms–:though some readers commented that the work reminded them of magical realism. At about 25,000 words, it reads easily as a short novel or long short story. Please make some popcorn and enjoy reading 'A Good Man Henry.' Contains adult language and adult themes.
