All it takes is a quarter to change pediatric psychiatrist Dr. Owen Lerner's life. When the coin he's feeding into a parking meter is struck by lightning, Lerner survives--and now all he wants to do is barbecue. What will happen to his patients, who rely on him to make sense of their world? What will happen to his family?
The bolt of lightning that lifts Owen Lerner into the air sends his clan into free fall. Mary Kay Zuravleff's "Man Alive " is a warmhearted portrait of family-on-family pain rendered with wisdom, generosity, and devastating humor: In the Lerners' household, you will recognize your own.
