About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

A boy of morals, compassion and dreams becomes a man of immorality, passion and nightmares. Praise for Oh Susanna Back Cover Text “Dave has crafted a compelling, deeply human story.” —Gayle Brandies, author of Self Storage and The Book of Dead Birds “A powerful story of a complex character who Frey managed to make despicable and funny and sympathetic all at the same time.” —Kathryn Lynn Davis, author of To Deep For Love Tim McGowan is driving around Talbot County, deciding whether he should live or die. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Raised by his maternal grandmother in a small West Virginia town, Tim had a plan: Get an education. Become a teacher. Marry and raise kids. It didn’t include the family curse of alcoholism and ruined dreams. Then, life happened. Oh Susanna follows one man’s stunning reversal of fortune as it explores mankind’s ability to inflict pain, sense guilt, and seek redemption. As Tim loses his teaching career, his wife and his daughter, he will confront the awful truth that he has become his own worst enemy, acting out his life based solely on a destructive pleasure principle and lust. Even knowing the consequences of error after error, Tim continues to annihilate the feelings of those he knows and loves. But there remains one last chance to save himself—and his legacy. Feelingly told, Oh Susanna is a vibrant, moving, and surprisingly funny novel of human frailty, faith and hope.

Deftly constructed at 324 pages, Oh Susanna is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction / General category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Oh Susanna meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $22.95.
