It’s hard to resist writing a recommendation in the form of a list.

This the earnest internal monologue of a man in crisis—Dan's quit his teaching job and opened a bookstore but it’s not doing well and he’s afraid to tell his wife. He’s insecure, has regrets, is counting down to financial ruin and Jill wants to have kids. Everything comes to a head as Jill becomes pregnant. You find out all of this through his lists—lists of things he hates, life lessons, books of the month, financial woes, and more. I went into this with doubts about how it could work but the humor pulled me right in and the story emerged beautifully.
