Publisher's Summary

Thirty-five-year-old introvert Todd Bryan hasn't really done much with his life, and he's okay with that. Until, at a painfully bad film festival, he meets Amy Husk. She's attractive. She's funny. She's quirky. And...she has an inoperable brain aneurysm and not much time to live. She may not even make it to the long-awaited final episode of Exit Red, the greatest show ever.

She convinces him that they should do something crazy and frivolous. And suddenly Todd, a guy who doesn't do spontaneity, is on an insane road trip from Florida to Rhode Island with a woman he barely knows, just to visit a really cool hot dog place.

Many things will go wrong. But, hey, many things will go right, too. There's a hook-handed hitchhiker and some property destruction. Maybe some sex. A kumquat will probably be relevant at some point, although not during the sex (if there is any).

A laugh-out-loud comedy, a touching love story, and a cross-country adventure, Kumquat is a story about making the most out of the time you've got.

Really really weirdly different

I usually find this author very funny but I had a hard time liking the story. I was kind of bizarre from the beginning to the end I did ask my money back. I think the only reason to listen to it is because of the narration-he has a great voice

Kumquat. A highly enjoyable ride.


Got this book through Kindle Unlimited and decided to buy the audiobook at a discount price. This was absolutely brilliant.
Jeff Strand is a teller of great tales.
I always feel in a good mood from the moment they start.
Excellent narrator too. Really helped bring this story to life.
Congrats to both.
Jeff Strand has yet to let me down.
