Editorial reviews

Many critics wanted to hate Mark Sarvas's first novel, Harry, Revised, considering the fact that Sarvas had eviscerated many a writer's work on his literary blog The Elegant Variation, but ultimately few critics could manage to feel anything but dazzled by this humorous and heartfelt debut.

Bringing the book to life is Audie Award-nominated voice actor John McLain, who justly claims to do more than just tell the story. Rather, this gravelly-voiced god is a "storyteller" who imbues a story with "a soul". In this performance McLain becomes the voice of Harry Rent, a widower who falls helplessly in lust with a 22-year-old waitress on the day of his wife's funeral.

Publisher's summary

In this critically acclaimed novel, Harry Rent finds himself young and single and lost after the passing of his wife. Although numbed by his life's unexpected turn, Harry becomes fixated on Molly, an obsidian-haired, 22-year-old waitress. Meanwhile, Harry is forced to fend off Clare, his sister-in-law, who is convinced that Harry is somehow responsible for her sister's untimely death. At once deeply moving and darkly comedic, Harry, Revised is an extraordinary novel about the measure of a man's worth by a wonderful, emerging talent.
