Fever 42 ARC  $4.95 


Overview: Ted Wharton, 42, a teacher at Whitman High in Somerside, New Jersey, lives a routine suburban life with his wife and kids. Disenchanted after fifteen years of teaching, going thru the motions at work –and home—he feels the clock is ticking. Then it happens: on the same day that one of Ted’s colleagues drops dead of a heart attack, Joy, 17, a bright and stunningly beautiful senior in one of his classes, makes a play for him. And he puts up no resistance. Fully alive for the first time in years, he revels in his wild trysts with Joy –many at Whitman High. Living on the edge, obsessed with Joy, but realizing the ultimate disaster this will become, tries to end his relationship with her. Only to see his world spiral out of control. A tragicomical tale of desire, deceit and betrayal, Fever 42 is a thunderbolt of a novel, an unforgettable joyride. Quotes: "I thought that Chris Fahy’s novel Fever 42 was both wildly funny and surprisingly sad. The combination made me think of the early J.D. Salinger period. ... I think it will attract a lot of attention. Chris is a wonderful writer." – Stephen King; “Ribald, erotic, hilarious, deeply serious and tragic, often all at the same time, Fever 42 proves one of those rare books that restores our faith in the mainstream novel – and strangely, in humanity.” – John Grant, Crescent Blues Book Views; “… Gut-wrenching… Takes off like a drag racer howling down a quarter mile track.” -- John Robinson, Portland Press Herald; “ All the thrills and spills of a runaway mid-life crisis—from the safety of your armchair.. delightfully scandalous.” – Michael Kimball, author of Undone and Green Girls; “… A narrative that drives you like an out-of-control second-hand Dodge station wagon on a ride that makes you worry for your own strange trajectory.” – Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season. 328 PP. Overlook Connection Press, F/F. 328 PP. Overlook Connection Press, Advance Readeing Copy, VG/VG.
