Publisher's Summary

To all appearances, Zachary King is a man with luck on his side. A steady, well-paying job, a rent-free Manhattan apartment, and Hope, his stunning, blue-blooded fiancee: smart, sexy, and completely out of his league. But as the wedding day looms, Zack finds himself haunted by the memory of his best friend, Rael, killed in a car wreck two years earlier, and by his increasingly complicated feelings for Tamara, the beautiful widow Rael left behind. Then Norm, Zack's freewheeling, Viagra-popping father, resurfaces after a 20-year absence looking to make amends. Norm's overbearing, often outrageous efforts to reestablish ties with his sons infuriate Zack, and yet, despite 20 years of bad blood, he finds something compelling in his father's maniacal determination to transform his own life. Inspired by Norm, Zack boldly attempts to make some changes of his own, and the results are instantly calamitous. Soon fists are flying, his love life is a shambles, and his once carefully structured existence is spinning hopelessly out of control. Charged with intelligence and razor sharp wit, Everything Changes is at once hilarious, moving, sexy, and wise, a work of transcendent storytelling from an exciting new talent.


What the Critics Say

"Pithy observations on love, marriage, and corporate life give the book a graceful charm. Tropper continues to display a fine feel for romantic comedy in this enjoyable follow-up to The Book of Joe." (Publishers Weekly)

Good guy book

After I first started listening, I thought this was a guy-book (vs chick-book) because it had lots of references to guy noises and guy troubles. But I stayed with it and it turned out to be a good story so I would have to say I recommend it.

It Ain't Your Average Family

I loved this book.

Now for the bad part. While the protagonist's predicament moved me very much, there was a tendency on the part of the author to overwrite the melodrama. At times I wanted to scream, "Dude, enough is enough!" This is a dysfunctional family of major proportions and the reader can't help but feel Zack has contributed mightily to the tragic aura surrounding him.

Scott Brick, who I normally love as narrator, contributed to the high pitch insanity with his over-the-top vocal gymnastics. Still, this reader realizes the lump in my throat is warranted and Everything Changes firmly plants me in a world created by a gifted author.
