Description

"A story of grand faux pas and dazzling dysfunction…a wildly satirical look at the absurdities of modern life." --The New York Times Book Review One of five men could be Sam Callahan’s father. Is knowing the truth worth the havoc he’ll cause trying to find out? Laid low by divorce—the result of an endless stream of poor choices—Sam decides it’s time he met his dad. But his quest to meet the men and discover the truth does more than just shake up the five likely suspects—it pretty much napalms the lives of everyone he meets. “Wild , wonderful, and wickedly funny…Highly recommended.” — Library Journal “Ribald… comic and bawdy…oddly endearing…an effective blend of flippancy and compassion.” — Publishers Weekly “Tim Sandlin only gets better. Social Blunders is an affecting book…It is fiction to be savored.” —Larry McMurtry “A weird, funny, raunchy novel that veers wildly from pathos to slapstick and back again, and it’s surprisingly effective.” —Booklist “Tim Sandlin’s stuff is as tight and funny as anyone doing this comedy novel thing.” — Christopher Moore

He turned forty with no phone, TV, or flush toilet and spent more time talking to the characters in his head than the people around him. He now has seven phone lines, four TVs he doesn’t watch, three flush toilets, and a two-headed shower. He lives happily (indoors) with his family in Jackson, Wyoming.
