Hysterical Love

By Lorraine Devon Wilke

General fiction, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


Dan McDowell, a thirty-three-year-old portrait photographer set to marry his beloved Jane, is stunned to find his pending marriage tossed after a slip of the tongue about an “ex-girlfriend overlap” of years earlier. Camped in the second bedroom of best friend and next-door-neighbor, Bob, Dan finds himself caught in existential confusion as Jane refuses reconciliation, an unexpected partnership is offered at work, and, most devastatingly, his bear of a father, a man he loves but has never understood, is downed by a stroke. It's when big sister Lucy shares a decades-old story written by this confounding man that life takes another bizarre turn. It seems there was a lost love of fifty years ago, one that shaped his father’s views on the topic, and one, Dan becomes convinced, his father still pines for. As his own romantic dilemma becomes increasingly impossible to fix, Dan sets off on a wild ride of detours and semi-hilarious peril to find the mysterious woman from his father’s past, convinced she holds the key to happiness for them all.
