?An off-beat love story?alternately deeply moving and laugh-aloud funny.? ? Good Housekeeping
?Jon Cohen conjures magic, weaving a gentle romantic fantasy of piercing and eccentric beauty.? ? Boston Globe
Since he was disfigured in a fire sixteen years ago, recluse Louis Malone has remained hidden from the prying eyes of his neighbors in the small town of Waverly.
Across town, Iris Shula, a lonely and unlovely nurse knows, at thirty-seven, it is unlikely that her Prince Charming will ever appear. But Iris is about to learn how wrong she is.
When Louis accidently falls out of his second story window these two kindred souls are brought together. What unfolds is a most unlikely love story. One that will make you laugh and that will break?and remake?your heart.
Book Lust Rediscoveries is a series devoted to reprinting some of the best (and now out of print) novels originally published from 1960 to 2000. Each book is personally selected by NPR commentator and Book Lust author Nancy Pearl and includes an introduction by her, as well as discussion questions for book groups and a list of recommended further reading.
Jon Cohen, a former critical care nurse, wrote his first novel between hospital shifts and raising two children. After receiving a creative writing grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, he turned to writing full time. His two novels, both critically acclaimed, are The Man in the Window and Max Lakeman and the Beautiful Stranger. Setting his sights on Hollywood, he purchased a ?how-to? book on screenwriting. He has since written numerous screenplays for Fox, Warner Bros., and Sony, and he is the cowriter of Minority Report, directed by Steven Spielberg. Jon lives with his wife outside of Philadelphia and is currently working on a new novel.
