Synopsis

A witty, tender memoir of a sons journey home to care for his irascible mothera tale of secrets, silences, and enduring love . When George Hodgman leaves Manhattan for his hometown of Paris, Missouri, he finds himselfan unlikely caretaker and near-lethal cookin a head-on collision with his aging mother, Betty, a woman of wit and will. Will George lure her into assisted living? When hell freezes over. He cant bring himself to force her from the home both treasurethe place where his fathers voice lingers, the scene of shared jokes, skirmishes, and, behind the dusty antiques, a rarely acknowledged conflict: Betty, who speaks her mind but cannot quite reveal her heart, has never really accepted the fact that her son is gay. As these two unforgettable characters try to bring their different worlds together, Hodgman reveals the challenges of Bettys life and his own struggle for self-respect, moving readers from their small towncrumbling but still colorfulto the star-studded corridors of Vanity Fair. Evocative of The End of Your Life Book Club and The Tender Bar, Hodgmans debut is both an indelible portrait of a family and an exquisitely told tale of a prodigal sons return.
